SDS Manager utilizes a comprehensive database containing over 13million+ Safety Data Sheets (SDS) from various suppliers and manufacturers globally. When you import your product list into SDS Manager, the system automatically matches the product names, supplier names, and product codes you've provided with the SDS in our extensive database. This automated process is designed to find and link the correct SDS for each of your products efficiently. If the system finds matches, it will automatically add those SDS to your library. This feature significantly reduces the time and effort needed to populate your SDS library.

SDS Manager is designed to accommodate complex organizational structures, including those with chemicals stored across multiple locations and sites. You can set up a multi-level location hierarchy within SDS Manager that mirrors your organizational structure. This feature allows you to organize and manage your Safety Data Sheets based on where your chemical inventory is stored. When you import your product list, we will automatically create the location hierarchy you have defined in your xls file. When you define a product to be located at “Factory Paris/Basement” SDS Manager will automatically create a location named “Factory Paris” with a sub-location named “Basement and link the product to the “Basement” location.

Yes, SDS Manager can assist you in finding Safety Data Sheets for your products. If you are starting from scratch or cannot find an SDS for a specific product in your library, SDS Manager offers several methods to help you build or complete your SDS library:

Database Search: Utilize SDS Manager's extensive database of over 11 million SDSs to search for and add the necessary safety data sheets for your chemicals.

Automatic Crawling: If you need an SDS from a supplier not already in SDS Manager's crawling database, you can notify the SDS Manager team, and they will add the supplier's site to their crawler. This service is provided at no extra cost, and you will be notified once the SDS is available.

Direct Import: You can import PDF files of SDS directly into the system if you already have them, making them instantly available in your SDS library.

Supplier Request: If a supplier has not published their SDS online, SDS Manager can contact the supplier on your behalf to obtain the required SDS. Alternatively, you can request the SDS directly from the supplier and forward it to SDS Manager for inclusion in your library.

Custom Assistance: For any SDS not available through the above methods, SDS Manager's team can assist in finding and adding these to your library, ensuring you have a comprehensive and compliant SDS inventory.
