Enhancements to Company Specific Substance Lists in CDX

  • You can grant a company access to your substance list by simply releasing it.
  • In the MDS ingredients screen, you can filter the tree structure for company specific substance lists. In the filter, you will find your own company lists, along with lists from companies that granted access to their specific list(s). Any substance from the chosen company specific list that is contained in the tree structure will be shown in red.
  • In MDS Requests, you can add your company specific substance list to give to your client, including the substances that should either be contained or not contained in the requested MDS.
