How to Incorporate Regulatory Lists to Ensure Chemical Inventory Compliance

How to Incorporate Regulatory Lists to Ensure Chemical Inventory Compliance

By: Anne Sefried, Dassault Systemes

As most EHS managers know, compliance with regulations–such as OSHA, GHS, EPA, CDC, DHS, DEA, CEPA, HMIS and HCS to name just a few–require you to have a detailed understanding of the materials being used in your facility. Many of those regulations also have Chemicals of Interest Lists with very specific requirements about managing and reporting those chemicals if and when a certain threshold limit is reached. Because each of these regulations has different criteria, most EHS professionals create internal Regulatory Lists to track the requirements and provide regulatory reports.

However, compliance with most of these regulations is extremely challenging without real-time data. Further, most facilities do not have a system that ties chemical inventory data to Right-to-Know documentation, such as Safety Data Sheets (SDS), or to the regulations that require reports or to Regulatory Lists.

VIEW OUR WEBINAR RECORDING to hear Anne discuss the many regulations – from CFATS to SARA – that affect research organizations and production facilities, what’s involved with creating a comprehensive Regulatory List, and how to ensure accurate, timely, stress-free regulatory reports.
