Enable data transparency for compliance and confidence
Materials transparency throughout the supply chain is multi-faceted and can entail a broad range of challenges, including supplier selection, measuring against environment, health and safety (EHS) objectives, sustainability goals, and environmental obligations. From material selection in the innovation stage and items used in daily manufacturing to understanding the makeup of the products currently on retail shelves, it is essential to understand product composition to comply, mitigate risks, meet sustainability goals and make informed decisions.
UL plays a critical role in supply chain transparency. We provide stakeholders the information and confidence needed to make decisions while helping to protect confidential business information (CBI). As a trusted third-party intermediary, we provide the insights for handling, storing, transporting, selling and disposing of materials or products containing chemical substances of concern. We simplify complex data and reduce ambiguity for many supply chain participants while delivering specific material data and insights required for compliance and decision making.
We can also help simplify the daunting challenge of completing time-consuming questionnaires, automating and integrating actionable data while protecting proprietary intelligence to help make data more transparent and manageable. When securing the information you need to move from complying to excelling in the market, we are your ally.
Our solutions and expertise help solve complex supply chain transparency challenges. Having transparency in a supply chain stretches beyond the composition of the product or complex bills of materials. UL works with customers to establish supplier performance metrics around specific needs and then creates assessment protocols to conduct audits and evaluate processes and systems. These reviews help reduce disruptions in operations, minimize risks and improve overall quality while supporting your organization in its drive to become more resilient and efficient.
