Chemicals, Food Contact & Cosmetics
For manufacturers of chemicals – which can be broadly defined as anything from specialty chemicals to lubricants, plastics and food contact to cosmetics and more - changing market dynamics dictate the need for flexibility in meeting customers' complex requirements for high performance sustainable products and improving supply chain performance. Delivering quality products in record time is critical, as are optimizing business processes across your enterprise and global supply chain.
Meeting these objectives is no easy task given an increasingly complex regulatory landscape. As legislation and the needs of upstream customers constantly evolve and regulatory drivers expand to include areas of social responsibility and sustainability issues, it becomes exponentially more difficult to ensure EH&S and supply chain compliance.
3E Company has an extensive history of leadership in serving the needs of the chemical market. We are proud to boast that eight of the world's top 10 chemical manufacturers are long-time customers.
3E® provides a central source of comprehensive, accurate compliance content solutions and services that can be easily managed and integrated into a manufacturer's business processes. The results are increased levels of compliance, reduced risk and liability, and improved performance.
Mitigating Supply Chain Risk
The demand for data transparency is insatiable and unavoidable. Understanding what products are made of, the regulatory status of products and components, and the origin of products form the basic building blocks for managing regulatory obligations, communicating to key stakeholders and mitigating risk in your supply chain. 3ESC Supply Chain Solutions™ can help you:
Ensure the Safety of Your Products
While compliance affects the entire manufacturing organization, typically only a few individuals fully understand and are accountable for ensuring requirements are met. Product compliance information and data usually exists in silos, spread across several business units throughout the organization. 3E provides EH&S and regulatory professionals with powerful and robust tools for a number of compliance related activities, including:

Manufacturers Are Users of Chemicals Too
Not only do chemical companies need to ensure the safety of their finished products, but the safety of their employees who are handling chemicals or hazardous substances in the workplace as well. In addition, regulatory professionals find value in having access to the information found on their raw material MSDS / SDSs when the time comes to document everything that goes into their finished products.
3E can alleviate much of the burden of maintaining vendor MSDS / SDS data by offering a highly secure web-based application with supporting services that include obtaining, indexing and maintaining MSDS / SDSs for all chemicals used in the manufacturing process.
Alternatively, 3E can feed robust document sets, including MSDS / SDS, compliance declarations, technical data sheets and material declarations directly into an existing EH&S, procurement, EMIS, or other system such as SAP, Enablon, BIOVIA (formerly ChemSW) CisPro, SciQuest or other OTC or custom system, which can significantly streamline the management of chemical data by centralizing it into a single repository. Centralizing data saves valuable time, increases efficiency, and ensures consistency across the entire organization.

Ensure Compliant Transport
As products are transported up and down the supply chain, ensuring compliance can be a challenge, especially for global companies. 3E can help you ensure products can be shipped using a preferred mode of transport or provide guidance to employees to ensure proper use of markings, labels and documentation. 3E can provide an emergency contact phone number to publish on your MSDS / SDSs or provide a phone number to your employees to call in the event of a spill or exposure.
