Saint Gobain and Behr Process are examples of companies producing and distributing raw material, finished goods and chemical safety information to customers in record time— by partnering with Actio. SDS Author is a professional service and Safety Data Sheet (SDS) authoring solution that creates compliant SDSs on finished goods containing hazardous materials.

For a fraction of the cost of authoring your own safety data sheets, SDS Author takes the raw material information stored in the SDS Vault data library to create SDS information relevant to your unique product formulations. This information is then analyzed against Actio’s entire aggregation of regulatory content to identify potential hazards, health effects, and compliance requirements. The outcome is a comprehensive, custom, detailed database of product information, which is used to generate SDS for your customers around the world, in over 40 languages. 

Now your customers can have round-the-clock, online access to accurate, up-to-date SDS documents with your company logo on them— at a fraction of the cost than if you did it yourself.
