We want to emphasize the following facts:

  • The CAS number registry contains more than 110,000,000 substances with CAS numbers.
  • The provided raw materials in our database can only be a small subset of the contents of the CAS number registry and contain the most common chemicals. Usually customers have to add own chemicals. The percentage of chemicals in our database, which a company might use, varies depending on the type of industry. Please check the list of chemicals in our database to check for completeness here.
  • As ECHA expressly prohibits the transfer of substance specific data to other software, we can unfortunately not provide this information.
  • Ecotoxicological data is hardly available. We do, of course, seek to implement as much data as possible into our databases.
  • The substance names cannot be made available in all languages, as the necessary translations (for example Thai and Hindi) are not at our disposal. In this case the English substance names are used, which is usually accepted by the national authorities without objection.
  • Our database does not contain any mixtures, also not basic mixtures, which might be sold as raw materials. Customers have to add missing raw materials by themselves. DR-Software will not do that.
