Restricted Substances Data Module

A unique dataset for addressing strategic business risk related to restricted substance regulations such as REACH.
What is it? A regularly-updated information resource that helps you to understand your exposure to the legislation and standards that may restrict substances used in manufacturing your products.
What is in it? Over 10,000 records, each describing a specific restricted substance. Details of over 125 pieces of national and international legislation, regulations, and industry standards that regulate the use of substances.
What is it used for? As a knowledge-base to explore the implications of restricted substance regulations. Link to in-house data with GRANTA MI:Restricted Substances to assess risk for your materials and products.
Where does it come from? The data is compiled and maintained by Granta Design, guided by the EMIT Consortium.
How do I get it? Via the GRANTA MI materials information system.

A unique resource to help mitigate restricted substance risk

Every manufacturing organization is aware of the risks associated restricted substances—legal liability, non-compliance costs, re-design, product recalls, or inability to make or service products due to materials obsolescence. Minimizing these risks is difficult, not least because of gaps in company knowledge. It’s difficult to keep up with updated regulations, or to gather data from suppliers. The Restricted Substances Data Module is a unique information resource to solve this problem.

This regularly-updated knowledge-base covers thousands of restricted substances and 125+ international legislations, regulations, lists, and standards. And this data is linked to the property data on the full spectrum of engineering materials and to information on coatings. You can build similar links between the substance records and information in your corporate materials database.

These links enable queries such as “Which materials will this update to the REACH regulation impact?” Keep up-to-date with the regulatory landscape and fill knowledge gaps, for example, where supplier data is missing.

What substance data is included?

  • General information about the substance (e.g., CAS Registry Number, IUPAC name and common synonyms, classification and labeling, and uses)
  • Links to all legislation in the database that affect that substance
  • Each legislation is given a rating for each substance, from ‘Banned’ at it most severe to ‘Caution’ at its least severe
  • A rolled-up rating can be associated with a substance record, showing the most severe rating of all legislations linked to that substance – this helps with the generation of summary reports for materials or products containing many substances.
