How efficient are your hazard communication authoring processes?

Subscribe to globally compliant SDSs

To support your ongoing compliance needs and keep pace with the constant flux in regulations, 3E staffs a global regulatory research team dedicated to:

  • Monitoring all applicable regulations worldwide
  • Translating new regulatory requirements into enhancements to the content and data used to generate SDSs
  • Delivering quarterly system updates and enhancements
  • Handling all 3E ERC content updates for components and products and delivering updated compliance data to 3E ERD users

Subscribe to comprehensive component data

With the component management service, 3E ERD alleviates the burden of continually maintaining your component data. The 3E ERD service starts with your supplier SDSs and assesses them for relevant information. Regulatory data from 3E ERC is also assessed and loaded for your components, such as regulatory lists and occupational exposure limits. 

3E ERD then utilizes end-point data such as physical-chemical, tox and eco-tox data and 3E ERC component data based on peer-reviewed public sources researched by 3E’s regulatory experts to deliver globally compliant SDSs. 



Regulatory impact analysis

With every regulatory content update you receive comprehensive information on changes to components and raw materials and the impact on your products and SDSs. 

3E ERC Impact Analysis provides full transparency, enabling you to evaluate up front the impact of regulatory changes and plan for internal and external communications, changes in subsequent product compliance processes such as labeling, transport, etc. and process changes such as exchange of non-compliant components.

Work smarter with expert rules and process automation

3E offers a series of customized SDS authoring rules and workflows to process your requests for product SDSs and component classification. The workflows support a high level of standardization and automation. For example, they perform checks on required data fields before any processing starts.
