Teresa Dier, managing director of Barbour EHS

Cedrec Information Services has become part of Barbour EHS, a provider of regulatory information, guidance, standards and resources.

The move follows the acquisition of Cedrec by Barbour’s parent company, Marlowe, for £3m in 2022.

Headquartered in Gateshead and established in 1994, Cedrec is a digital provider of consolidated environment, health and safety (EHS) legislation and legal register consultancy.

It has more than 1,000 clients on its online subscription service enabling people to keep on top of their health and safety, environmental, energy and planning compliance.

Barbour was established in 1957 and is a provider of guidance, legislation and standards to support organisations with their EHS compliance. 

This includes an online authoritative library which is updated daily, ready-made and editable communications tools, and an updated legal register facility that enables organisations to put important compliance frameworks in place. 

Barbour covers health and safety, environment and energy, estates and facilities management, fire safety, mental health and wellbeing and international.

Teresa Dier, managing director of Barbour EHS, said: “We’ve been working together for over a year and coming together under one brand is the next logical step. 

“It will help us to focus our energy and expertise, and we’re excited to be working together towards the same goal: providing comprehensive support to our clients with keeping their employees safe and healthy, and operating in a way that protects the environment.”

Gareth Billinghurst at Cedrec added: “Becoming part of Barbour EHS will allow us to offer our clients a substantially strengthened service. 

“We’ve been working closely with the team at Barbour over the past year to ensure a smooth transition and look forward to showing our clients the many benefits that this move will bring.”
