Actio Material Disclosure
Third-party Evaluation Tools
Actio Material Disclosure is a supply chain communication tool that retailers and manufacturers can use to securely collect, store, and distribute regulatory and ingredient information about materials in a product supply chain for global compliance. It is designed as a robust, structured database platform to track, analyze and compare raw material chemical components and product data against regulations.
Suppliers enter chemical composition information and documentation into a product record which can then be accessed, at the supplier's discretion, by manufacturers or retailers that want to evaluate or purchase the material.

Ecological health, human health, worker health and safety
Actio Material Disclosure organizes product information by component and chemical ingredient. It consolidates data on toxic or potentially hazardous substances in the supply chain that may be contained in a company's products. Supplier product and materials data is compared against national, international, and local regulations, directives and standards, along with any industry or client specific restricted substance lists. The collection of this data creates a single product record that is stored in a central repository.
Securely, and by permission only, retailers can be granted access to see the information designated by the supplier.
Suppliers must provide comprehensive material content information including MSDSs, technical data sheets, certificates of analysis, and food grade certificates. This data is entered once,resides as a single product record, and is stored in a central repository. The information is immediately accessible to the retailer or manufacturer.
Cost depends on client requirements and data management needs. Off-the-shelf and customized modules are also available.
Strengths: The supply chain communication tool allows suppliers to enter chemical composition information into a product record that can be accessed, at the supplier's discretion, by manufacturers or retailers.
