Actio Releases Update of Material Disclosure Software

Actio Corp. has released a new version of its Material Disclosure software. The company is a provider of software for managing information on supply-chain materials, for purposes of environmental and regulatory compliance. The latest release of Material Disclosure comes in the wake of tougher enforcement by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency of laws governing the use of chemicals in manufacturing and distribution. The Web-based software simplifies product stewardship and environmental compliance by automating supply-chain communications about substance-level ingredients in suppliers' products. The tool provides for the automation and tracking of component, parts, substance and chemical inventories. It provides for instant structured communication by way of an integrated questionnaire and automated e-mail campaign wizard. It provides visibility into who accessed what information and when, along with alerts when a supplier has added, changed or reviewed any data. To aid in regulatory compliance, Material Disclosure displays a visual representation of bills of materials for evaluation of component-replacement scenarios. It compares data against current environmental regulatory lists. Advanced threshold alerts and notification signals inform the user when inventory is near or exceeding a limit.
