Evotec Adopts ChemAxon's Compliance Checker to Aid Controlled Substance Management

ChemAxon and Evotec AG (Frankfurt Stock Exchange: EVT, TecDAX, ISIN: DE0005664809) today announced the licensing and deployment of ChemAxon's Compliance Checker technology and content package to aid in correct handling and storage of chemical compounds used across Evotec's global research sites.

Many countries and regions have regulations about the handling and movement of chemical compounds. Understanding and keeping up to date with regulations is difficult and time consuming, particularly when multiple countries are involved. Compliance Checker is a technology and content package which provides an interface and back end integration tools to help identify, alert and guide the correct handling of controlled substances.

Speaking at the announcement, Alex Drijver, CEO of ChemAxon commented, "We are happy that Evotec have adopted this, given their global reach and wide scope of interests," and added, "we see the functionality as a rational way to automate compliance across our clients' organization."
