Granta Design Ltd. (Cambridge, UK) has announced the latest enhancements to its GRANTA MI:Restricted Substances software, which helps aerospace and other engineering enterprises to de-risk their materials and processes, to design for compliance and to analyze products and report on compliance risk for existing products. New developments include extended reference data to fill gaps in in-house information, enhanced tools to manage proprietary knowledge, and fast apps to answer business-critical questions. Risks associated with restricted substance regulations (e.g., the European Union’s REACH) include: legal liability, non-compliance costs, redesign, product recalls and inability to service products due to material obsolescence. Materials and related processes and specifications are the source of most restricted substance issues. MI:Restricted Substances is built on GRANTA MI, a system for materials information management. In-house information managed in GRANTA MI is linked to a regularly updated database of 8,000+ substances and 100+ international regulations that restrict their use. Software tools enable users to apply the resulting knowledge-base to analyze risk not only for specifications, materials and processes, but also for designs and products. Updated data on regulations include the IARC Monographs on the Evaluation of Carcinogenic Risks to Humans and the EU RoHS2, China RoHS2, CoRAP, and CLP Regulation lists.
