A Restricted Substance Notification in SDS Manager is an alert feature that informs users when a substance within their safety data sheets (SDS) database contains ingredients subject to regulatory limitations or bans. This helps ensure compliance with health, safety, and environmental regulations.

SDS Manager regularly updates its regulatory information database to reflect the most current standards and regulations from relevant health and safety authorities.

The Restricted Substance Notification is available on the Pro and Enterprise plans.
