According to preliminary findings from this year’s Chemical Watch annual survey of global chemical management and control activities, two thirds of companies will expand their internal chemical compliance teams in the next five years. Additionally, three fifths (62%) will increase their use of external service providers. Both these figures represent an increase of 60% compared with 2013’s results, suggesting the global drivers for chemical regulation activity remain strong.

The findings, thus far, show that REACH (77%) and CLP (52%) regulation continue to be the main global driver of chemical regulation.

Moreover, the average salary increase, at participants’ last pay review, is 2.8% - the perception of job security also improved with more than a quarter (28%) saying their role is more secure than last year compared with a fifth (20%) claiming the equivalent in the 2013 survey.

Stuart Foxon, Chemical Watch Commercial Director, says:

"Almost 1,300 professionals have completed this year’s survey so far, and they are telling us that, despite the passing of some significant REACH deadlines, there is little let up for the global chemical compliance manager as regulations in other countries are enacted and implemented. Teams are getting larger, job security is improving and the use of external service providers is increasing."
