Chemical management

Gatekeeper is the newest module for a web-based Chemical Management System. CMS lowers the cost of automating a company’s chemical management tasks. Gatekeeper speeds and manages the multiple processes of screening chemicals prior to purchase, tracking approvals, managing inventory, and accounting for chemicals within the company. The process begins by prescreening a chemical against a library of government and health/safety lists; enterprises can also upload their own criteria to initiate or manage corporate objectives, such as banning carcinogens or reducing hazardous air pollutants.
