Q: How can you distinguish between own (local) products and Intersolia products? 


A: Intersolia product

Intersolia products are basically products which the customer has inventoried in their system from the global database.

Every Intersolia product has an i-number as a product number. Safety data sheets are updated by Intersolia.


In the iSafe of the product you can see under "Name and designation" that the product is not marked as a local product.



Choose product > iSafe > Show composition > Under synonyms and trade name

Here you can see that it has an Intersolia i-number.


In the inventory the Intersolia product will have the green icon:


A: Own (local) product

Own (local) products are products that are not based on any SDS and are not updated by Intersolia. The product is local and is only visible in your company's system.
