SDS Authoring and Generation Software

Quantum’s SDS Authoring and Generation software helps manage the creation, distribution and storage of Safety Data Sheets (SDS) on the web or an intranet.

Our software features a brand-new user interface so that you can easily create professional new GHS-compliant safety data sheets from just one page – no chance for missed information because of constant switching between screens.

The easy-to-learn module dramatically cuts time spent with SDS by standardizing the management process and streamlining the authoring and generation procedure. The SDS Authoring and Generation module integrates with existing ERP systems and ensures automatic compliance with current chemical regulatory requirements.

Even better, Quantum has designed the database structure to adjust to future regulations and compliance.The module will always be up-to-date and additional time and money will not be required for software updates.

Our software features a brand-new user interface so that you can easily create professional new GHS-compliant safety data sheets from just one screen – no chance for missed information because of constant switching between screens. It can be purchased as a stand-alone solution or as part of the Q EHS compliance software package.

  • Quantum’s SDS software is also entirely web-based. You can log in from any computer and pick up right where you’ve left off.
  • The licensing fee covers anywhere from up to 25 users, so you can have many people within your company editing, authoring, or accessing SDSs at once.
  • The digital library you’ll create stays within Quantum’s cloud-based SDS management system for easy access whenever you need it.

Additional features include:

  • Automatic flagging and documentation of: first shipments, revised MSDS and number of MSDSs within one year;

  • Guaranteed protection of trade secrets by user-defined percent ranges and the ability to hide proprietary chemical information;

SDS Authoring Service

Is Authoring for You?

Quantum also provide authoring service to take the trouble away from you! To determine whether SDS Authoring or SDS Conversion Service is the best fit for your company, ask yourself these questions:

  1. Do we have existing SDS or MSDS for our products?
  2. Are we confident our existing SDS or MSDS (including precautionary statements such as clean-up methods and personal protection recommendations) are accurate?
    • SDS must have a standard 16-section format
    • Label elements must contain pictograms
    • Check your ingredients – they may have been reclassified under HazCom 2012
  3. Do we have in-house expertise to author new SDS for our new products?

If your answer to either question is no, then SDS Authoring is the right service for you.
