WERCS Studio online reporting module enables manufacturers to streamline their hazard communication program by completely eliminating manual systems for VOC/HAPs reporting. The module automatically gathers VOC/HAPs data from SDS management software and cross-references it with order history—allowing your customers to enter the name of your product and get a complete VOC/HAPs emission analysis for annual reporting requirements. This valuable tool reduces the turnaround time for gathering critical data from several weeks to instant access and greatly decreases the strain on your internal resources. Learn More >
Substance Volume Tracking
Meet REACH and other global chemical compliance requirements based on quantity triggers and defined timelines.
There are a growing number of chemical regulations requiring companies to track volumes of certain chemicals as they are shipped to various parts of the world. Companies must now identify their products that contain specific chemicals relevant to local legislation, track the shipment volume of these products across all production sites, then register when necessary.
WERCS SVT is a module for WERCS Studio users designed to generate report requirements that track the quantity of manufactured, imported, and sold chemical substances in accordance to local regulations around the globe. Learn More >
Is every material movement transaction in your facility globally compliant? WERCS Studio Global Trade Transaction Monitoring [GTTM] can help users to be sure that the answer to that question is always yes.
GTTM is designed to manage, analyze, and take action on material transactions against a series of defined regulations. The end result is an answer, yes or no, to the question, “is this transaction globally regulatory compliant?”
Regulatory Impact Analysis
Changes in regulations can have significant downstream effect. It is a challenge to know what has changed in a recent regulation update, but to also identify which products are affected. Once identified, it is then critical to make certain that SDS documents are republished in the appropriate languages to accurately reflect regulatory updates. The web-based Regulatory Impact Analysis module for WERCS Studio allows users to isolate those specific products impacted by regulatory changes communicated through a subscription service.
WERCS Studio can assist in gathering and organizing data for Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act (SARA) reporting requirements.
Accurate inventory is one of the key elements to achieve the required reporting regulated by SARA. Other key elements include up-to-date chemical formulation information. WERCS Studio SARA module marries existing inventory management systems to chemical formulations within the software application.
The Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) regulates the introduction of new or already existing chemicals. UL Wercs is uniquely positioned to fully understand the changes to TSCA under the Frank R.
