REACHing out for Green Paradise: Free Scrub off SIN


San Jose, CA, Sep 22, ‘08- Papros Inc.’s free download enables rapid scrubbing of BOMs for substances and groups of substances in SIN 1.0 (Substitute It Now), which is a wishlist of substances desired to be phased out by certain groups. This should come as no surprise as Papros Inc. has more than twenty years of experience in compliance products, as a result of which it is quite familiar with list proliferations in chemicals management, and thus has built-in capabilities in its products to handle frequent list changes. The SIN list as well as the earlier announced list of potential substances of very high concern are two examples of lists for REACH for which scrubbing examples are shown in the free download. Moreover, the new version of download enables companies to seamlessly combine concentrations of substances represented by CAS numbers as well those represented by EC numbers in the same procedure by uniquely identifying them in the program as well as for visual checks..

MRPRO’s BOM scrubbing capabilities are offered free for download in a limited version. Heavy duty users needing more advanced capabilities and ability to handle larger BOMs (free limited version can handle 100 parts per BOM list) can, if they desire, buy an upgrade. The limited version can also do rollups of parts compositions in a BOM. The download site is:

The free BOM scrub capability enables companies to closely protect their Intellectual Property by keeping their BOMs in-house. In addition to complete control of IP, market competitiveness in procurement is also greatly enhanced because the companies can now be in control of supplier interactions in terms of pricing, availability and strategic sourcing for parts. Moreover, as the supply chain greens, companies can thus build on their knowledge base and be green leaders rather than following the herd.

Papros Inc. had announced previously free downloads of MRPRO’s REACH Bulk Pre-registration file generation capability. That download is still available at:

The free downloads from Papros Inc. offer interfaces for accomplishing the tasks in a manner that in efficiency is unparalleled by any other software offering from any company or trade group consortium. Clearly, the focus of Papros Inc. for more than twenty years in the green business shows its mark.

MRPRO offers the spreadsheet interface for Material/Substance Declarations in addition to industry and W3C compliant XML formats for the data.

By easily exchanging data on the web or the desktop, the entire web is the database for MRPRO and the spreadsheet is the interface.

MRPRO supports Design for the Environment by easily exchanging product footprint, obsolescence information and due diligence communications in the realm of Montebello Agreement, REACH, RoHS, RoHS-like (China, Korea), JMOSS, WEEE, EuP, AB 32, Green Chemistry Initiative, Extended Producer Responsibility and other emerging regulations.
