SDS Management for Chemical Manufacturing

Responsible chemical management is fast becoming a requirement for any brand or retailer as part of a sustainable product offering. This is placing pressure on upstream manufacturers to provide products that are produced in the absence of hazardous chemistry. This means an additional effort around chemical management for the entire upstream supply chain including chemical procurement, storage, handling and use, and waste management. 

Chemscape can help with best practices for chemical management within the chemical manufacturing sector, including: 

  • Chemical handling 
  • Safety Data Sheets (SDS) 
  • Creation and maintenance of a Chemical Inventory  
  • Searching for ingredients on restricted substance lists in different jurisdictions 
  • Pulling together environmental reports  
  • Distributing Safety Data Sheets for your product to customers 
  • Authoring Safety Data Sheets for your products
