I have, finally, remembered the name of the service that most impressed me.  It is called ENHESA and can be found at


They provide on-line access to virtually all countries' EH&S regulations on one form or another, along with  notification of changes and proposed changes on a country-by-country basis.  I thought it was a very comprehensive service.  It is also very costly but has different levels of service at different prices.


However, what I found most interesting was their quarterly, electronic  newsletter called the ENHESA Flash, which was available at no cost.  On a global region-by-region basis is offers notes on what they think are the most notable regulatory changes and proposals.  Go to and follow their link to "contact us"  It looks like you have to fill out an on-line form and ask to be added to the Flash distribution list.


Be aware that I've not received ENHESA Flash since I spun out of Xerox at the beginning of 2017, and it may have changed since then.

When I was spun out from Xerox about 2 years ago, the Bloomberg BNA services
were expanding to cover global, as well as US, EHS regulations.  I imagine
they have accomplished that by now.  There were 3 or 4  other commercial
firms offering similar services.  These are more than notifications, but
usually include search and summary, as well as full text access.  They are
NOT cheap and usually require some training to use them effectively.

I wish I could remember the names of the other services.  If they come to
mind, I'll send them along.  The BNA was not the most suitable for our
purposes at the time.
