How much time does your team spend authoring hazard communication documentation?

Companies are obligated to provide employees and downstream customers with unlimited access to critical safety information via Safety Data Sheets (SDSs) and other hazard communication documentation. Creating and maintaining comprehensive, updated SDSs that conform to complex and changing regulations in multiple jurisdictions worldwide is a challenging and resource intensive task.

access to information

Streamline authoring with ready-made classifications

regulatory research and monitoring

SDS Monitoring and Regulatory Change Notification

Countries continually update SDS and label requirements to reflect evolving regulations and chemical hazard information. SDSs and labels can quickly become outdated and noncompliant unless a systematic review and update process is in place. 3E can monitor all regulatory changes affecting the documents we have authored for you and advise when updates are required.
