Retailers and other participants in the WERCSmart platform who sell, transport, handle, store, or dispose of chemical containing products face challenges in complying with increasingly complex EH&S federal, state, and local regulations. The data contained in the Safety Data Sheets (SDSs) supplied with the products frequently do not contain sufficient information for compliance with these regulations. WERCSmart provides retailers and other participants with the data required to comply.
