Green EcoSystems Group Announces Green-ES Compliance Software Solution for REACH and All Other Global Product Toxicity Management Requirements


Colorado Springs, CO, December 8, 2008 - Green EcoSystems Group (GESG) announces the availability of its Green-EcoSystem (Green-ES TM) product environmental compliance software to help all types of manufacturing companies address requirements for ‘Articles’ as mandated by The European Union’s Registration, Evaluation and Authorization of Chemicals (REACH) Directive. Key REACH requirements for ‘Articles’ include: substance level analysis, substance presence, and concentration level communications to ‘Article’ recipients and consumers, ECHA notification, and customer audit reporting.

The REACH Directive came into force on June 1, 2007. Replacing more than 40 previous regulations, it entails a highly complex set of requirements that are geared specifically for “Downstream User” product or ‘Article’ manufacturers, component suppliers, as well as for substance manufacturers and importers.

The Green-ES software solution utilizes proven technology based on The GoodBye Chain Group’s award-winning MDW-ES Product Environmental Compliance (PEC) software platform. “For the past four years, GCG’s MDW-ES has been the leading PEC software solution for companies needing to comply with all of the global RoHS Directives as well as all of their customer-driven toxicity requirements”, said Jim Dills, Founder and Director of GESG. “Now, companies can utilize GESG’s Green-ES software to proactively minimize the various supply chain/business disruptions that are expected to occur because of REACH, RoHS, or any other substance directives such as Califonia Prop 65 and the Califonia Green Chemistry initiative enacted on September 29, 2008. Companies can reduce their costs and time-to-compliance, while avoiding yet another major compliance directive fire-drill.”

GESG’s Green-ES software solution allows companies of all sizes to: 1) immediately build their own internal REACH-ready substance libraries; 2) identify those substances that are operationally critical to both their products and manufacturing processes; 3) highlight and find substitutes for any of the ~3000 substances that will eventually be restricted or banned under REACH; 4) author and store REACH compliant Safety Data Sheets (SDS), store 3rd party lab test reports, and other REACH-related documents; and 5) track safe use information, description of use information, and any other substance-related data needed for REACH compliance.

Green-ES fully supports other global substance management compliance requirements including EU RoHS, EU RoHS II, China RoHS, S. Korea RoHS, Norway PoHS, and California Prop 65. Green-ES enables companies to easily import, cleanse, analyze, roll-up, and report on substance and material data based on parts per million compliance triggers that could dramatically affect a company’s ability to sell products into the EU or around the world.

Green-ES software meshes seamlessly with GESG’s product toxicity, waste stream management, climate, and energy analysis services. As such, GESG provides a unique solution that includes its environmentally-conscious product and process analysis capabilities in tandem with its Green-ES software solution. This unique combination is unmatched by any other solution provider in today’s Green Solutions markets and is the industry’s only one-stop solution for REACH, RoHS, and other product-related toxicity compliance.
