Intertek launches Assuris to meet customers’ fast-increasing need for science-based assurance in a changing world

October 20, 2021

Mississauga, ON – Intertek, a leading Total Quality Assurance provider to industries worldwide, is pleased to unveil Intertek Assuris, the new name for its Health, Environmental, and Regulatory Services (HERS) business, as it innovates to meet the fast-growing demand for end-to-end Total Quality Assurance (TQA) solutions around the world.

Intertek HERS has a rich history of more than 40 years assisting its clients with high-quality, tailored, and integrated regulatory services across Food & Nutrition, Chemicals, Cosmetics & Personal Care, Pharmaceuticals, and Food Contact & Packaging. However, as the global economy has changed significantly, and the operating environment of our customers has become increasingly complex, the need for systemic risk-based quality assurance solutions has never been greater.

True to Intertek’s pioneering spirit, the rebrand of HERS to Intertek Assuris reflects the evolution of the business line, complementing its traditional offering and representing the broadened scope of services being delivered through our industry-agnostic, Sustainability, Quality, and Safety solutions that provide systemic risk-based quality assurance, now and into the future.

Intertek CEO, André Lacroix said, “Our HERS global business line is widely known for its industry leading professional expertise, as well as its world-class scientists, engineers and regulatory specialists. At Intertek, we have a track record of innovating and anticipating the growing needs of our clients, and we constantly evolve and improve our customer proposition to meet their changing requirements and the changing world around us. We strive to be at the forefront of industry change, and the expansion of our services under the Assuris business line reflects the heightened scrutiny in which our clients work—24/7, in an even more complex post-pandemic world. Our global network of experts—the Assurists—are truly passionate about making a difference, providing science-based assurance for every one of our clients in this fast-changing environment.”

Ayush Dhital, Vice President of Intertek Assuris, added, “Our Assurists are the heart of our new brand; an unrivalled team of industry-leading experts designed and equipped to help our clients reduce risk, access global markets, promote health and safety, and protect the planet.”

Intertek Assuris provides unparalleled support in the following 4 key service areas:

  • Regulatory: Providing global regulatory support and scientific substantiation to enable market access.
  • Sustainability: Providing a pathway to decarbonization, helping bring sustainable products to market, and supporting end-to-end ESG needs.
