With increasing number of regulations and need for operational transparency, companies are increasingly adopting the use of consolidated and harmonized sets of compliance controls. We collect/author, analyze and distribute
compliance data related to RoHS, REACH and SDS/MSDS to both end users as well as to EHS solution providers.
REACH is a regulation of the European Union, adopted to improve the protection of human health and the environment from the risks that can be posed by chemicals while enhancing the competitiveness of the EU chemicals industry. We help manufacturers, importers and downstream users in achieving their REACH compliance fulfillment by sourcing & providing following information:
- Substance name and related identifiers. These could be, for example, the IUPAC name, EINECS or ELINCS number or CAS number.
- Molecular and structural formulae, if applicable.
- Information on the composition and purity of the substance.
- Spectral data and other analytical information to verify the identity and composition of the substance.
For past many years material safety data sheet (MSDS) is an integral part of OSHA’s Hazard Communication Standard (HCS). MSDS primarily applicable for chemical products warns users of the specific dangers of such products and guidance on their safe handling, storage, and disposal. In order to align with the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS), OSHA revised HCS thereby renaming MSDS to SDS. We work with end users as well as solution providers wherein we source/author following product data.
- HAZARD(S) IDENTIFICATION
- COMPOSITION/INFORMATION ON INGREDIENTS
- FIRST-AID MEASURES
- FIRE-FIGHTING MEASURES
- ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
- HANDLING AND STORAGE
- EXPOSURE CONTROLS / PERSONAL PROTECTION
- PHYSICAL AND CHEMICAL PROPERTIES
- STABILITY AND REACTIVITY
- TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION
