Decernis LLC Announces Extended Partnership with Japan NIHS

July 11, 2017

Washington, D.C.-based Decernis LLC, a major provider of technology and content solutions for product compliance, safety, and risk management, announces an extended partnership with the Japanese National Institute of Health Sciences (NIHS).

Working with the NIHS since 2010, Decernis has expanded access and accessibility through the use of gComply which provides the current necessary global knowledge and regulatory library to determine the compliance status of products, components, materials, ingredients and/or substances.

The expanded and extended partnership will provide two NIHS groups deeper access to gComply, now including the FDA Plus and Food Contaminants modules.

The NIHS will continue to provide Decernis with draft and final Japanese standards which will then be loaded into our regulatory horizon scanning and reference libraries to help businesses determine the compliance status of products, ingredients and/or substances.

Decernis will apply its search and portal technologies to make the NIHS information as well as broader Japanese food related regulations and standards more transparent, searchable, and easily accessible for both manufacturers and importers.

"This partnership will provide customers better access to knowledge and technology through the additional and future intelligence incorporated into Decernis' gComply and Horizon Scanning products" stated Kevin C. Kenny, Chief Operating Officer at Decernis LLC.

"The agreement will further benefit customers though introductions and deeper insight into the workings and voluntary lists of Japanese industry associations in the food sectors and the interpretive support regarding Ministry of Health Labor and Welfare regulation of foods, food additives, food contaminants and food contact substances."
