IHS Acquires ERM's Environmental, Health, and Safety Databases
The Environmental Resources Management Group has announced the sale of ERM Computer Services and ENFLEX environmental, health, and safety (EHS) databases to Information Handling Services Group (IHS Group) of Englewood, Colorado. The new company to be formed, IHS Environmental, Inc., will be a part of IHS Regulatory Products, Inc. and will produce and market the ENFLEX environmental, health, and safety databases and the EarthLaw Environmental and Safety Libraries.
IHS Environmental will maintain a strategic alliance with the Environmental Resources Management (ERM) Group and will continue to draw on the resources of this international environmental consulting organization to provide clients with environmental, health, and safety regulatory information and to produce additional value-added environmental information products.
According to both organizations, the combination of expert environmental health and safety knowledge and a keen understanding of the information business will enable His Environmental to expand the products and offer new delivery mechanisms for the constantly changing environmental, health, and safety marketplace.
Chris Meyer, president of IHS Regulatory Products and CFO of the IHS Group, said, "By combining the relative strengths of IHS Regulatory and its EarthLaw environmental database with ENFLEX and a strategic alliance with the ERM Group, IHS will be a premium provider of information on U.S. and international environmental, health, and safety laws, rules, regulations and their implications on business."
