The ZDHC InCheck Report (Inventory Check) helps Suppliers to check their chemical inventory against the ZDHC MRSL on the ZDHC Gateway. The ZDHC Performance InCheck Guidelines contain all the necessary information for Suppliers to work with the Performance InCheck Report.
The chemical guidance sheets are attached to the MRSL at the relevant substance. You can find the ZDHC MRSL here.
We suggest generating a Performance InCheck Report once a month to support continuous monitoring and improvement of a Suppliers’ chemical management
To generate a Performance InCheck Report, please have a look at the ZDHC Performance InCheck Guidelines or ‘Performance InCheck via Solution Providers (for Suppliers)’ article published on the ZDHC Knowledge Base under the Gateway section for detailed instructions.
Suppliers can share their ZDHC Performance InCheck Reports with their connected Brands online on the ZDHC Gateway. Suppliers can also share Performance InCheck Reports offline with interested stakeholders.
The Performance InCheck Report is a document that summarises both numerically and graphically the following items:
- The number of chemical products uploaded by the Supplier in its monthly inventory.
- Number and percentage of chemical products from this inventory that is listed in the ZDHC Gateway.
- ZDHC MRSL Conformance Levels (current or previous) of products listed in the ZDHC Gateway.
No, the inventory details uploaded by Suppliers to generate the ZDHC Performance InCheck Report are not verified or validated through a third party. Thus, it should be primarily used as a tool by Suppliers for internal monitoring of the chemical products in their inventory.
The ChemCheck Report is a chemical product passport or better a ZDHC MRSL Conformity Certificate for Formulators to assure their customers that their chemical product has been verified to the ZDHC Conformance Standards. The ChemCheck Report includes information such as:
- A chemical product summary which includes the ZDHC MRSL Conformance Level with description on the respective levels.
- A certification summary as well as SDS summary, listing individual chemical product certifications and their verification status.
The cost to create a ChemCheck Report is included in the annual product fee. ChemCheck Reports are only available for public chemical products.
The Performance InCheck Report shows the Suppliers how much their chemical inventory onsite conforms to the ZDHC MRSL. The Gateway Inventory List of chemical products (snapshot of CIL) which the Supplier uploads, is screened against the ZDHC Gateway product database to generate an InCheck Report. If you are a Supplier and would like to use the InCheck option, please contact any of the ZDHC Accepted Solution Providers available on ZDHC Implementation HUB to purchase InCheck.
