From its inception to present day, the SDS has evolved into a document that goes far beyond its original purpose. Many times it now serves as a source, foundation and clearinghouse for a range of safety and regulatory compliance data, including classification, transportation, environmental, ecological and disposal considerations. Verisk 3E™ has spent more than two decades developing the world's premier hazardous materials information database, holding well over 10 million MSDS / SDSs and growing every day.

Upstream Needs for SDS Content

Manufacturers often need critical information from their vendors' SDSs and raw materials for inputs into their own compliance requirements. Verisk 3E can extract and feed this meta data directly into an authoring platform or other EHS system to be leveraged as appropriate.

Downstream Workplace Safety Requirements

Maintaining an accurate inventory of chemicals and associated SDSs is essential for complying with workplace safety and employee right-to-know requirements. Employers are obligated to provide their employees with unlimited, uninhibited access to critical information (found on the SDS) when handling hazardous materials and products.

Verisk 3E has made a name for itself with its SDS database. We do not simply collect SDSs that are available from free websites, but have spent nearly two decades assembling and maintaining our database - holding well over 10 million SDSs and growing every day - via our Manufacturer Alliance Department. This team consists of full time specialists who are devoted to nothing but obtaining multi-lingual documents directly from, and maintaining relationships with tens of thousands of manufacturers all over the world.

Verisk 3E provides a variety of SDS Management programs and integration solutions, which are flexible, scalable and modular, offering a variety of options and enhancements based on the EHS information management needs of your organization.
