Product Stewardship and Safety

With over 30 years of experience in evaluating chemical exposures, toxicity, and risk, Gradient offers strategic and technical analyses to address product safety issues associated with "green regulations," adulteration claims, product recalls, and concerns over exposure.

We critically assess the scientific basis of product safety and product liability claims, examining the underlying toxicology information and testing methodologies. We estimate potential human and environmental exposure levels to assess safety and risk. We assist clients with evaluating the safety of their product portfolio using tools such as hazard or risk ranking and alternative assessments. Gradient also assists clients in communicating product safety issues to the public, regulators, and the courts in terms that are both scientifically compelling and understandable.
