Tackling regulations can feel like swimming through regulatory soup. Requirements and regulations are confusing and often conflict with each other.

Industry standards and guidance documents (eg. ASTM, ISO)
Customer specifications (eg. aerospace)

Set up favorable permits

Engaging the elephant
Far too often, regulatory compliance becomes the ‘elephant in the room;’ and manufacturing productivity suffers. Components manufacturers become trapped in a Catch-22 situation; they may jump from the frying pan into the fire by trading one hazard for another. They may analyze their way into paralysis. They may end up with a cleaning process that performs poorly. They may end up with processes that are dangerous to workers, with processes that are harmful to the environment, with processes that to not meet even minimum regulatory requirements.
BFK Solutions help you engage the elephant. We assess the regulatory situation; we clarify the regulations, and, sometimes with your permission, we head off problems by having you sit down with someone from a regulatory agency. BFK Solutions helps our clients achieve critical cleaning and other manufacturing processes that are effective, defendable, and that meet or exceed regulatory requirements. We work with individual companies, with the military, and with trade associations.

Sometimes, even careful, conscientious companies come under serious regulatory scrutiny. BFK Solutions helps resolve the problem as quickly and productively as possible.
