Jonathon Thackray, Country Chief Executive Officer for BVCPS UK, Netherlands & Eastern Europe comments: "The global regulatory landscape of consumer product requirements is ever-changing, with new or updated regulations and standards being released on a continual basis. Understanding and being alerted of these changes is critical for our clients in order to make strategic business decisions.
