The first step in any Azerbaijan Mobile Phone Numbers project is to rigorously define the scope of the regulations and the resulting constraints. It is also important to know precisely your product catalog in order to be able to take into consideration all the elements that may have an impact on the activity of the company. Our client is an ETI offering its products on several continents; it was necessary to analyze the main regulations, by continent, applicable to the products that our client manufactures and markets. Three regulations concerned our client’s products: REACh : European regulations on the import and use of chemical substances in Europe;

CPSIA : the US regulations for chemicals in products intended for children 12 years of age and under; Proposition 65 : Californian regulations obliging sellers to inform consumers about the risks relating to substances present in articles that do not comply with the recommended thresholds. There are differences between each regulation, the latter not addressing the same substances and / or imposing the same concentration thresholds. However, synergies between each of them are possible and make it possible to optimize the workload and improve the risk assessment. This first step is certainly one of the most time-consuming: it requires a lot of attention to capture all the details in order to facilitate analyzes and action

How To Manage The Risk

plans to follow. Prioritize risk, a necessary step for the smooth running of the project Regulatory compliance concerns all products in the same catalog. The objective is that no deviation from conformity is detected and that all the products in the catalog comply with regulatory requirements. As part of a monitoring and compliance project, it is necessary to define the priorities to be managed in order to avoid an excessive workload, therefore inconsistent costs relative to turnover and at the margin generated. In our case, we have defined a table of risks and assigned each of them a processing priority. This approach makes it possible to


set up an effective “road map” in order to then work on the strategy to be put in place. The first step is to identify the tasks and / or operations to be dealt with first. This makes it possible to prioritize the problems to be solved according to agreed criteria and to manage the actions essential to the success of the project, the secondary actions being processed subsequently according to the progress and consistency of the results obtained. In our case, we took as the main criterion the chemical composition of the articles in the catalog in order to identify the quantities of substances at risk, with regard to the regulations, present in each article

Prioritization Helps In Decision-making

and to be able to identify the range of products to be treated. in priority. We then categorized the risks associated with the substances present in the articles by assigning importance criteria to several parameters that could generate a regulatory deviation. The INRS (National Institute for Research and Safety) lists on its website the main evaluation criteria to be used, including: the type and frequency of exposure, the type of hazard associated with the substances, the quantity of substance present in the article… Depending on the activity of the company, additional criteria may be defined and will have an impact on the prioritization of the

treatment of deviations. We can find among these criteria: the type of client (adults or children), the quality of raw materials supplied by your supplier, sales volumes … The result generated by the analysis of its various factors makes it possible to assign a level of risk to each item. The level of the result obtained makes it possible to directly define the processing order of the ranges to be analyzed. In our case, since the evaluation criteria do not have the same criticality according to the regulations, the attribution of a different score to the criteria will make it possible to know on which market the product presents the most risk.
