Identification of controlled substances
The first step towards meeting compound compliance legal requirements is the identification of controlled substances such as narcotics, psychotropic drugs, and chemical weapons. Compliance Checker is a combination of a software system and a regularly updated content package providing a flexible tool to screen chemical structures efficiently against the controlling legislation. It is available both as SaaS and on-premise distributions.
Dealing with controlled substances at a pharmaceutical company or in any other life science R&D organization, one must implement rigorous controls to meet the requirements set by the regulatory bodies covering both production, possession, import/export, transportation and disposal of such substances. If by any chance such law, regulation, or ordinance is violated, it may cause the loss of reputation, sales, and can also result in financial and criminal penalties.
Compliance Checker is a nexus between software and content package providing a flexible tool fitting in all compound compliance workflows. It screens chemical structures efficiently against the controlling legislation. Compliance Checker channels knowledge into your system about controlled substances.
Compliance Checker relies on a comprehensive knowledge base made up of relevant legislation of 18 countries and 5 international regulations. The regular updates are guaranteed at no additional cost. Resources are continuously monitored and new regulations are immediately extracted and are automatically merged to the knowledge base
Regulations are transformed into chemical query structures that are matched against the substances to be checked. The search runs using ChemAxon’s JChem Engines, which enables the finding of isomeric forms, salts and makes sure that the exceptions are not found. The integrated Markush technology makes it possible to cover generic regulations. Upon request, we can extend the geographical coverage, include further legislations, or add internal corporate regulations into the knowledge base.
