EU regulations on Hazardous Substances states that you are obliged to keep a register of all hazardous substances which are used by your company.

In preparation for building a hazardous substances register, you can rely on the data ecratum has collected for you.

In the ecratum module 'Raw Material Documents' you can easily collect data sheets and operation instructions for all the raw materials of your suppliers. Together, these documents contain all important information you need for the hazardous substances register.

You should proceed as follows:

The hazardous substances register typically contains two document types

  • safety data sheets
  • operation instructions
  1. Ensure that both document types are available on your ecratum account. (If not, please contact us at
