New acquisitions for Wolters Kluwer.
GEE produces a range of information and research products and events covering regulatory and compliance issues in a range of formats including online, print, CD, telephone helplines, and software. The products are designed to help HR, safety and health professionals "comply with the law, reduce risk and increase productivity." The GEE assets will become a part of Thomson's CCH (Riverwoods, IL) and Croner (Kingston on Thames) units. Croner offers publications, consulting services, training, software and small business information for health, HR and safety professionals.
All four of GEE's print titles are targeted to UK audiences. "Noise Management" is a monthly newsletter that focuses on environmental and neighborhood noise, including occupation noise. Targeted to local authorities, consultants, monitoring professionals and related industry professionals, the letter's editorial includes coverage of legislation, practice, equipment and health effects.

No terms were given. ICFED becomes a part of Kluwer's Legal, Tax & Regulatory Europe division.
