Boost-Your-Chemical-Safety-Process-with-ERA-Product-Approval-Software (002)

ERA's Product Approval module is the best way to expedite your chemical and material approval processes, ensure effective tracking, and avoid setbacks in product development across facilities.

Configurable Collection Forms

Standard form templates show all the fields required for effective data entry, but they can also be modified to suit the type of data you want to gather and restrict progress if certain questions aren't answered.

Automated Alerts

Chemical and EHS Managers receive automated alerts every time a step is completed, a request is denied, a roadblock is flagged, information is requested from the manufacturer, and the product or chemical gets approved.

Linked Chemical Regulations

View linked chemical regulations—TSCA, SARA 313, Homeland Security Chemicals of Interest, etc.—in one query.

Reduced Manual Work

Automated data collection and management lets you eliminate spreadsheets and manual data tasks.

Integrated Product Approval Software

Your product approval data integrates with other key management tools from ERA's software offer
***Other modules must be purchased separately***


Environmental Reporting

Transfer your products' chemical formulation to your inventory reports, like Tier II, and avoid entering the same data twice


Product Specifications

The system pulls the information stored in your products' SDS from ERA's SDS Management and SDS Authoring modules


Master Chemical and Regulatory List

Our MCL tracks over 200,000 chemicals and toxic categories to determine the exact composition of your products

Ease of Use for Everyone Involved



Chemical Management Officers

Chemical Managers no longer have to go through redundant re-approvals for products used consistently, no matter which facility they end up in or whether they are delivered in different containers.


Suppliers can skip the data entry process for already-approved products.


Vendors can add their product's information, including physical and chemical properties, directly into the software, seamlessly initiating a material approval request that is easy for reviewers to approve.

Environmental and Safety Reviewers

EHS Managers have access to the same database (if allowed by access rights reflecting corporate hierarchy) where on-site products are assessed and accounted for, thus expediting approval.

Built-in Chemical Regulatory Review

A service for users who want the peace of mind that comes with guaranteed OSHA/EPA compliance
Custom regulations for your facility
We provide each of your facilities with custom lists showing just the regulations that apply to their specific operations. These lists are synched nightly with our MCL for accuracy assurance.
Regulatory monitoring and updates handled by ERA
We have a team of full-time chemical researchers and scientists that maintain your lists for you, saving you the time and effort that goes into regulation monitoring.
Different regulatory reviews for different teams
We offer the option of configuring your workflows to allow different teams (Environmental, Quality, Safety, etc.) to review only the regulations relevant to them.

Why our clients love ERA


ERA software ROCKS - helps save time

ERA's programs are a HUGE life-saver for me. I'm able to get a lot of regulatory reports done in hours vs weeks. Specifically TRI, Tier II, and various emissions reports/inventories. I'm now working on adding additional modules for safety and other reports.

Customer support and help with projects are outstanding

The software takes some time to get used to, like any software. The customer support and help with projects are outstanding. They are all around fantastic; every person on the team is friendly, responsive, and very knowledgeable.

My company has used this software for 21 years

ERA designed reports specific to our needs and have added to and updated those reports as environmental laws changed. Our finishing material suppliers submit their information directly to ERA, which makes our record-keeping much easier.
