Keeping up with changing regulation efficiently and continuously


  • Yordas Hive Prime Edition manages the complicated process of regulating the chemicals that are found in complex products
  • Hive enables our customers to see a full list of substances within their products, in a structured and live solution
  • Reduced the time and effort required in staying up-to-date with regulations


Yordas Hive gives us the confidence that in an ever changing legal chemical landscape we are kept informed of all the changes which specifically affect our products. This allows us to communicate any required changes to our suppliers quickly rather than spending time looking for changes in legislation and manually checking product specific BOM/BOS and SDS’s
