Exclude products from restriction lists

The restriction lists in iChemistry are indicative (static and based mainly on fixed criteria such as CAS / EC numbers or hazard statements) and do not take into account factors such as weight percentage.

Thus, some products will sometimes match against restriction lists where you may make the assessment that it should not be covered by the requirements linked to the restriction list. You can then choose to exclude that product from the restriction list.

You can exclude the product either by going through the product's iSafe, or by clicking on the restriction list on the Overview.

1. Exclude product from restriction list via iSafe

Search the product and go to iSafe. 

Click Edit. Go to 'Restriction and prohibition lists' and click Manage.

Choose which list the product should be excluded from, write a comment on why this product should be excluded and then click Save.

Once you have saved, you can see that the product has been excluded in iSafe, and the product is deducted from the total number of products in the list in the Overview.

If the excluded product receives a new, updated SDS (Safety data sheet), you will be notified about this in the Overview > To do, see "Products with new SDS that have been excluded from a restriction and prohibition lists".

The product will remain excluded, but if you want to include it again, you can go the same way via iSafe > Edit > Manage and then uncheck the restriction list again.

2. Exclude products from restriction lists via Overview

Overview > Restriction and prohibition lists > Select a list

By clicking on the icon in the column for "Manage", you can choose to exclude a product directly in the list.

The total number of products on the list will decrease by one, but you can still see the product in the list as "Excluded" and greyed out. You can choose to include it again later if you want, by clicking on Manage again.

Comment products on restriction lists

Via the button Manage, it is possible to add comments in connection to a restriction list. This can be valuable if you have done an investigation and want to document your findings and conclusion. Don't forget to hit Save after writing the comment.


If the checkbox is not ticked, the product remains on the restriction list. Comment is visible anyway.

Include a product to a restriction list

If you have a product that is not on a list, but you would like it to be, you can manually include it. This can happen for example if the supplier has sent an SDS with incomplete data, so there is nothing for the system to match against, such as missing CAS numbers in section 3. 

To manually include a product to a list, go to the product's iSafe > Edit > Restriction and prohibition lists and pick a list in the drop down > Save.
