What is the process of uploading product safety summaries?
The 3-step process is simple: Register, Search and Upload. Once registered, you simply search for the relevant chemical substance and click on the substance name in the search results. To upload, click the red ‘Upload Information for this Substance’ button at the bottom of the web page.

The Safety Summary Sheet is already on my company website.
No problem - simply provide the correct URL to the file - there is no need to supply the file.

My Safety Summary Sheet is specific to one country. Is it still relevant?
Absolutely! If your GPS Safety Summary is targeted to a specific language, choose a language from the optional drop down list. When the safety summary is uploaded, the GPS Safety Summary will appear with the appropriate flag next to it.

There are already Safety Summary Sheets for the substance. Should I still upload one?
Yes. The more data is available, the more complete the resource and the more open and accountable our industry will become.

I need more information. Is there a help guide?
