HSM in a nutshell

HSM is the Hazardous Substance Management module for Microsoft Dynamics BC (Business Central in the Cloud and on premise) and NAV. It ensures the highest level of integration into the existing BC/NAV solutions especially for the chemical industry and is also used in combination with other ERP systems.

HSM contains substance database, formulation management and calculation modules for mixtures regarding hazardous substance classification and labelling, dangerous goods classification, etc.as well as functions for the generation and dispatch of documents, in particular for the Safety Data Sheet according to REACH Regulation or the PCN submission to ECHA. HSM contains (among others)

  • Substance database with basic substance and dangerous goods data
  • Formulation management and transfer from production BOMs, production structures or development recipes
  • Classification and labelling calculation according to GHS
  • Safety Data Sheet (SDS), also Extended SDS (eSDS) and other documents
  • PCN functions including submission to the ECHA using S2S functions
  • Text modules (phrase catalogue in currently 31 languages)
  • Generation of hazardous substance labels
  • Automatic SDS dispatch with region related version management
  • Dangerous goods classification and transport processing (transport documents according to ADR, IMO, IATA)
  • Flow Chart Calculator (FCC) for any kind of rule set definitions
  • Volume related evaluations, e.g. for REACH, hazardous substance inventory, Seveso III inventory

All kinds of evaluations and calculations

All kinds of rule sets for the Flow Chart Calculator (FCC) are represented in some few configuration tables. This way production and development recipes/formulations can be classified and evaluated in many ways. Examples:

  • GHS classification in accordance with CLP Regulation
  • VOC contents in accordance with Swiss incentive tax (VOCV)
  • Compliance with application-related VOC limits according to Decopaint Directive
  • Ingredient groups according to Detergents Regulation
  • Check on conformity with substance inventories like TSCA or IECSC
  • Heavy metal contents in accordance with EN 71-3
  • MAL-Code for Denmark

All kinds of documents

The abstract data structures of HSM, for example properties and reports, are stored in standardized configuration tables. Therefore, specific substance properties or report structures for documents can be defined as needed. Prosisoft provides predefined standards, such as for

  • Safety Data Sheet
  • Workplace instruction
  • IMO Declaration

Further kinds of documents can be defined according to the user’s specification or by the user himselfExamples:

  • Declaration of conformity
  • Technical data sheets (product data sheets)
  • Certificates of analysis
