How can you ensure product safety, compliance and marketability?
As product stewards struggle under the burden of complex market-specific regulations, exacting industry standards and increased consumer scrutiny, the need for regulatory intelligence has never been more critical. Without the ability to check for compliance early and often in the product development lifecycle, teams run the risk of having to rework formulations containing banned or restricted substances or, worse, recall products if they don’t meet regulatory obligations or customer requirements.

This feature includes phrases for all 16 main sections and annexes (e.g. EU REACH Exposure Scenarios) of the SDS according to various regulations such as REACH and GHS.
Leverage expert rules for substance and mixture classification
Expert rules are algorithms that calculate data according to product safety and dangerous goods regulations for use in generating compliant SDSs, labels and transport documents.
3E ERC+ Suite offers expert rules that cover regulations for the Americas, Europe, the Middle East and Africa and Asia Pacific.
Utilize SDS templates
SDS Templates are available to support authoring of compliant SDSs for more than 140 countries according to global, national and local regulatory requirements.
