Speciality chemicals leader Archroma, headquartered in Reinach, Switzerland, is launching The Safe Edge – an online platform for instant access to product related regulatory and compliance certificates and information.

With continuously growing public awareness around the social, health and ecological impacts of human and business activities, the need for transparency and traceability in supply chains has become essential.

Time to market is equally critical, and manufacturers, brands and retailers need access to reliable information in real time.

The Safe Edge platform has been designed with that in mind – it allows brands, retailers and manufacturers of textiles, fashion, packaging, paper, paints, to verify with just a few clicks the regulatory and compliance status of Archroma products, including regulations, ecotoxicological information and certifications, and brand requirements.

The Safe Edge covers standards, regulations and information such as air emission factors, animal origin, halal, kosher, plant origin, food contact, Blue Angel, bluesign, Cradle-to-Cradle, chemical inventories, Composability EN 13432, conflict minerals, EU Flower/Ecolabel, GOTS, CONEG, ISEGA, Nordic Swan, Oekotex Standard 100, California Prop 65, REACH, RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances), Screened Chemistry, SDS, SVHC (Substances of Very High Concern), VOC (US), ZDHC (Zero Discharge Hazardous Chemicals), and brand standards such as Coats A&F MRSL, Decathlon RSL 2020, Jack Wolfskin RSL and The List IV by Inditex.

The Safe Edge is already accessible for manufacturers, brands and retailers in Europe and Asia, and will be launched in North America in September 2021, and in Latin America by the end of the year.

“We wanted to offer a step change improvement in our service to all our customers and partners,” said Carole Mislin, global head of product stewardship at Archroma. “Time is of the essence, and The Safe Edge offers them instant online access to up-to-date regulatory and ecotoxicological information and certificates.”
