Before Adding a Chemical, have your Safety Data Sheet (SDS) in .PDF digital format. It must be less than 5mb in size. You will need to upload this during the Add Chemical process.
To Add a Chemical, go to Step 3: Review Chemical Inventory of your Annual, Revision or Update Report.
Click the Add Chemicals button
Click the Search by CAS/Chemical Name hyperlink.
Use the Product Name/Identifier from the Safety Data Sheet as the Chemical Name to search. Searching by CAS is for Pure substances only.
In the search pop-up in the "Chemical Name" column, type in the partial chemical name that is listed in the Product Name/Identifier section of the SDS. For the Example we are using the Chemical Name: LEAD ACID BATTERY WET, FILLED WITH ACID EAST PENN.
NOTE: Do not type in the full name of the chemical. If it has not been entered in the Master Chemical list exactly the way you typed it, CHS Manager will not bring up any results.
Scroll through the list to see if the chemical you are trying to add is in the Master Chemical List. Click on the Chemical name you are trying to add. (If it is not found, see the article How do I add a chemical that is not listed in the Master Chemical List.)
After selecting the Chemical, the CAS number (this will show N/A if the Chemical is a mixture), Chemical Name, Ingredient in Highest Concentration, and UN/NA Number fields are auto populated.
Answer the questions in the Chemical State of Use section, upload your Safety Data Sheet (SDS), mark the Physical and Health Hazards. Physical and Health Hazards can be found on the Safety Data Sheet.
Mark the Chemical Fee Exemptions that are applicable. Each of these are required to be marked Yes or No.
Click Save and you will be taken to the Inventory & Storage page.
Complete the Chemical Inventory section (all required fields).
Answer the Chemical Subject to Status Questions.
Add each Storage location for the Chemical. Click Save Storage Location after each storage location is added. Continue to add all the storage locations for this chemical. When you have completed this section, click Save at the bottom of the screen.
