Our database consists of domestic regulations and relevant international agreements for markets around the world, covering topics such as certification, composition, labeling, marketing, packaging, production, promotion, tariffs, taxation and transportation.



Our Forums offer users a way to communicate and to network with other Abridge subscribers. A special interactive section of the site enables users to submit useful information for others to see, as well as to exchange views and collaborate with each other on important issues. Links and contact information for industry, goverment, and inter-governmental organizations are also available.

An indispensable tool to provide both industry and government with practical information and to answer their queries. I use Abridge at least once a week and it is often my only realistic option to find the information I really need.
