The Digital Lab – Mobile execution to achieve faster innovation and increasing regulatory demands of the Chemical Safety Act

In 2016 many aspects of the world changed for materials and product producers in the USA.

For the first time, the regulatory change required the EPA to evaluate the safety of existing chemicals in commerce, starting with those most likely to cause risks and to evaluate new and existing chemicals against a new science based risk-based safety standard that includes explicit considerations for vulnerable populations. It is also empowering the EPA to require the development of chemical information necessary to support these evaluations.

The current administration has instructed the EPA to accelerate and improve the open scientific based approval process, to increase the competitiveness of US industry and to reduce the regulatory complexity. Hence the TSCA act is currently gathering momentum.

This talk will review the laboratory solutions, approaches and technology which BIOVIA, a brand from Dassault Systèmes brings to science based materials analysis and testing. It will dive into the details of managing the equipment, materials, personnel and procedures to operate a compliant digital laboratory.

Details describing the study, experiment and test execution that ensure the mobile capture of electronic data required to adhere to the regulations. With the required data captured electronically we can build predictive models to streamline the process.
