Toxnot provides a powerful editor for working with Products and Materials. From the editor, you can make changes to the data (e.g. Bill of Materials or BOM), generate reports (e.g. HPD), and view hazard data at a glance. The best way to create a BOM is to use our flexible upload, and then edit using the below setting, but you can also just create your BOM by editing a blank product as well.
Editing your Data
Toxnot's editor works like a spreadsheet. Click on a cell and type to edit it. Or use the text input at the top of the spreadsheet for more detailed editing.
You can't directly edit the RN, Chemical Name, Overall Rating, Regulatory Flag, or Custom Flag columns. These columns are automatically set by Toxnot based on the substance or chemical that is assigned to a row.
To assign a substance to a row, hover the mouse over a cell in the RN column, and click the edit button. Then search for a substance. Click "Select" to assign a given substance.
You can choose which columns should be displayed and in what order by selecting the "Columns" drop down and clicking the "Choose Columns" button at the top.
To perform operations on a row, select a row's checkbox (on the far left of the row), and use the Edit and Insert menus at the top of the page. You can indent/de-indent a row, move a row up or down, delete a row, insert a row, and insert a homogenous material. You can also save a row and the rows beneath it in the level hierarchy as a material.
Use all these editing capabilities, you can create an accurate BOM that you can then use to report out on your product!
Checking Hazard Information
To view a detailed substance page, including hazard tables and full restricted and regulatory list memberships, simply click the RN or Chemical Name.
Each row is assigned an Overall Rating based on the the substance in the row, and the hazards in the rows underneath it in the level hierarchy. Overall Rating is cumulative, so a given row inherits the worst rating from any of the rows beneath it in the level hierarchy.
To compare the hazard tables of substances underneath a level hierarchy, click the Overall Rating.
Substances that are on regulatory lists will be flagged in the Regulatory Flag icon. Click the flag to view the lists in question.
To screen against a set of custom lists, click the "Custom Flag" button in the header of the Custom Flag column. Then choose the lists you want to flag against.
