The Benefits: In their own words

Below are testimonials from a recent survey that highlight the credential's impact on current registrants:

Passing the registry exam ensures our authors provide consistent quality across SDSs as they author. Consistency and competency is important for our customers. Also, many of our large customers are familiar with the registry and when they learn we have credentialed authors, it boosts our eligibility to add customers or boost current project support.

As an owner of a consulting firm that specializes in chemical regulatory compliance, including hazard communication, I believe the SDSRP credential is important to our business. Having authors with demonstrated knowledge makes our clients more confident in their choice of authoring firms. We see this as an important selling point and an internal demonstration of quality assurance. ~ D. D.
