Key features

Design with the material in mind

Design innovative products with materials in mind, then optimize and validate the use of materials from engineering analysis and simulation through manufacturing.

Integrate material management with product life cycle management

Link the life cycle of your material data with the life cycle of your product (PLM). Our integrated material management transforms material data into true product intelligence, so you can make smarter decisions about materials.

Use your Bill of Material to trace restricted substances

Simply take your existing product data in the form of a Bill of Materials (BoM) and use our tools to quickly and easily check your product against specific substances in accordance with various environmental compliance regulations (REACH, RoHS, Conflict Minerals, custom).

Top Applications

Compliance Risk Screener (SolidWorks)

Import SolidWorks data directly and maps against compliance data. Check if any of the components and materials within products are subject to compliance regulations.

REACH / RoHS

Substance Compliance Manager

Draw compliance information from your supply chains and validate the compliance of your own products for various regulations (REACH, RoHS, Conflict Minerals etc.) early in the design phase.

Integrated Materials Manager

Get a holistic view of material data for use in all phases of the product lifecycle. Select, understand and use material consistently over PLM, CAD and ERP systems.

    What is product compliance?

    Products need to be safe and sustainable. Today Governments worldwide have implemented strict rules and requirements with regards to product safety and the environment. Product compliance ensures that products meets requirements in the form of directives, regulations and harmonised standards like REACH, RoHS or Conflict Minerals.

    Managing product compliance and the processes around it enables you to save time, reduce costs and mitigate risks.
