Goal: The process of collecting data on process chemical use is clear, simple, efficient, and standardized to reduce effort and increase understanding among suppliers and their customers.
Importance: Standardized data collection is the essential first step to identifying risks and opportunities to eliminate exposure
Develop a standard data collection tool for manufacturers and suppliers to more easily share data on chemicals used in production
Use this standard tool to enable better identification of risks and hazards and foster dialogue between suppliers and brands about elimination, substitution and risk reduction
Use a standardized data collection methodology to help reduce survey fatigue and protect intellectual property
Advocate for the widespread adoption of the standardized data collection template, with the goal of reducing costs and increasing efficiencies for addressing process chemicals
