Promote REACH compliance based on quantity triggers and defined timelines.
Our expert team has been heavily involved in standardizing processes for successful REACH compliance. This expertise and invaluable knowledge extend into our Substance Volume Tracking solution—which enables organizations to become REACH-compliant based on quantity triggers and defined timelines. This intuitive software module and process helps organizations to easily:
- Capture physical, chemical, toxicological and eco-toxicological properties of all chemicals that are being manufactured and imported into Europe
- Make decisions by analyzing this data through robust analytic tools and the most current regulatory data
- Become compliant by seamlessly pushing relevant chemical data to the IUCLID 5 database
- Design reports for Europe, the United States, Canada, Japan and Korea
Enable automatic VOC/HAPs reporting.
Our online reporting module enables manufacturers to eliminate manual systems for VOC/HAPs reporting. The module automatically gathers VOC/HAPs data from your SDS and cross-references it with order history—allowing your customers to enter the name of your product and get a complete VOC/HAPs emission analysis for annual reporting requirements. This valuable tool reduces the turnaround time for gathering critical data from several weeks to instant access, and greatly decreases the strain on your internal resources.

Create and meet retailer standards
Streamline the process of creating—and meeting—retailer sustainability standards with our PurView platform. With this multi-attributes supply chain risk management platform, retailers can survey and request information from manufacturers on any topic—enabling more sustainable, ethical purchasing decisions. Meanwhile, manufacturers can simplify the information-sharing process and immediately gauge how their products live up to retailer product standards.
Green Chemistry Scoring
Through GreenWERCS, manufacturers can drive greener formulations by analyzing ingredients—and their potential impact on human health and the environment. Use pre-identified scoring and weighting algorithms—or input your own parameters—to flag bioaccumulative and toxic substances (PBT); carcinogens; mutagens or reproductive toxicants (CMR); potential hazardous waste; and probable endocrine disrupters in your products. The resulting “green score” and visual analysis provides actionable information about the most immediate opportunities for reformulation. Retailers and distributors benefit by gaining the information they need to drive sustainability throughout the supply chain.
