Hazard classification uses
GHS Hazard Classifications generated by the UL Cheminformatics Tool Kit can be used for a number of purposes, including:
Chemical Registration Submissions
Facilitating chemical assessments while reducing animal testing, this objective computational approach provides valuable data to support chemical registration hazard information requirements. This is particularly helpful when you have data gaps that need to be filled in order to construct a robust submission.
Green Chemistry and Alternatives Assessments
Proactively assess potential chemical hazards upfront early in the product development process to design chemistries with inherently less hazards and to inform commercialization decisions. When evaluating candidate alternative chemicals, gain valuable information and insight to avoid “regrettable substitutions”.
Research Safety Data Sheets (R-SDS)
For new research chemicals with no or very little data, and even for existing chemicals in use with hazard data gaps, it is challenging to characterize hazards to support proper hazard communication in the absence of animal test data. UL’s Cheminformatics Tool Kit will enable manufacturers and formulators to efficiently and accurately assess the hazards of chemicals and create robust SDS’, labels, and relevant transportation, hygiene, and laboratory safety information.
