Toxnot is software-as- a-service that aims to help manufacturers and suppliers reduce costs and risks by automating the chemical transparency process. The software has searchable access to global chemicals hazard data, supply chain data collection, and automated transparency reporting for multiple industry standards.
Users can view global hazard data for their chemicals, compare hazards across chemicals, and view analytics of hazards across their product line. It is the first transparency software that is fully accessible to all business users regardless of company size, according to Toxnot.
Toxnot incorporates workflows for two difficult issues, data collection and reporting, combining supplier data collection directly with a full chemical hazards database and reporting engine so users can manage the product transparency reporting process from one place. In addition, Toxnot provides its searchable database free to anyone. Currently Toxnot is the only source for free access to GreenScreen List Translator scores, the company says.
The Toxnot software integrates with companies’ Bill of Material and formulation systems, importing product data directly into a reporting engine. Suppliers can avoid web forms and quickly import their data to submit to customers. Toxnot protects proprietary chemicals while allowing suppliers and manufacturers flexibility to see hazards and run products against changing compliance lists without having to recollect data from their suppliers. The service works across different device sizes from phones to desktops, and can scale to hundreds of thousands of users.
Toxnot started in September 2016 and their supply chain data collection module launched in January 2017. Hundreds of businesses have been using their free chemicals hazard database, the company says. Walmart recommended Toxnot as a resource to determine “priority chemicals” for reduction and removal in their 2016 worldwide supplier handbook, according to Toxnot.
