At a Glance

Actio Material Disclosure is a supply chain communication tool that retailers and manufacturers can use to securely collect, store, and distribute regulatory and ingredient information about materials in a product supply chain for global compliance. It is designed as a robust, structured database platform to track, analyze and compare raw material chemical components and product data against regulations.

Suppliers enter chemical composition information and documentation into a product record which can then be accessed, at the supplier's discretion, by manufacturers or retailers that want to evaluate or purchase the material.
