Master Chemical List

GHS Compliance Evaluation and Advice

ERA’s Master Chemical and Regulatory List (MCL) is a robust database that contains chemical regulatory information for over 200,000 chemicals which helps you increase the efficiency of your in-depth emissions reporting, chemical inventory management, and greenhouse gas (GHG) compliance. The MCL seamlessly integrates with ERA’s many solutions; environmental, sustainability, and SDS authoring providing accurate data for all reports and audits.


What can ERA’s MCL do for you?

The MCL allows you to track and monitor regulatory changes, confirm the accuracy of your data, and reduce the time your EHS professionals spend on research. With this service, you receive:

  • Regulatory Monitoring and Updates. ERA’s team of chemical researchers and scientists provides support in addition to our EMS modules at no extra cost, ensuring that your reports and records reflect the most up-to-date regulatory requirements.
  • Accurate data for environmental reporting. Environmental reporting is complex and requires knowledge of emission factors and VOC content; ERA’s MCL supplies chemical property data that is useful for many chemical calculations.
  • Custom Lists for your facility. With ERA’s platform, you receive access to all the regulations for your specific site and operations.

In addition to simplifying environmental reporting, the MCL provides accurate and updated information for:

  • SDS management & authoring
  • Tank emissions management

SDS Management & Authoring

ERA software enables users at any facility to author and manage SDS and to create secondary container and shipping labels with their choice of regulatory information, including:

  • Section 2: GHS Substance Classifications.
  • Section 8 Exposure Controls/Personal Protection: ACGIH PELs, OSHA PELs, NIOSH PELs.
  • Section 15 Regulatory Information:SARA 312, 313, CERCLA, TSCA, RCRA, California Proposition 65, DSL, NDSL, VOC, etc.

Tank Emissions Calculations

AP-42 Emission Factors are used to properly manage air quality and emissions from storage tanks during normal operating conditions. This makes emissions reporting infinitely easier for all the tanks at your facility.
