The Wercs, Ltd. and Japan Chemical Database Limited Form Strategic Partnership.

Joint Venture Expands Expertise and Coverage

ALBANY, N.Y. -- After an extensive global search for the appropriate partner, leading Japanese regulatory company Japan Chemicals Database Ltd. (JCDB) has announced its selection of The Wercs, Ltd. to satisfy a growing demand for global coverage from its customers and the marketplace. In the strategic relationship JCDB will market The Wercs software alongside its regulatory database and software package.

JCDB provides software, regulatory consulting and list-based subscriptions to companies with Japanese and ASEAN compliance requirements. A current topic of concern for companies doing business in Japan is its implementation of GHS, due to the wide range of global interpretations of the legislation.

"We have selected The Wercs in Albany, New York, USA due to the fact that the company has a 25-year history of successfully introducing its global software solution to well over 200 chemical companies," states Tajima Yasuyuki, Director of Sales. "After an in-depth audit of the company's software functionality, operability, and expandability, we determined that they had the most robust global software available. We are confident in recommending The WERCS solution to our customers."

Under the terms of the partnership JCDB will complement The Wercs Asian presence by offering additional services for mutual customers in the APAC region.

Lou Desorbo, president of The Wercs, Ltd. notes, "Partnering with JCDB enhances The WERCS expansion and localized support in the complex regulatory environment of the Pacific Region with the highest degree of expertise and professionalism."
