LOLI Database


The LOLI (List Of LIsts) Database is an extensive chemical database designed to quickly and easily find information on specific substances and regulations pertaining to them. LOLI contains over 5,900 regulatory lists from over 129 countries around the world – and counting. The database also includes synonyms and molecular and structural formulas with generic chemical groups. The regulatory data is supplemented with non-regulatory information on related topics such as toxicity, ecotoxicity, and physical properties. LOLI assists you in complying with occupational, environmental, health, and safety regulations and in writing Safety Data Sheets (SDSs) and labels for your products and intermediaries.

A consistent set of development practices and Standard Operating Procedures serve as a foundation for reviewing and maintaining a high quality regulatory database and for the development of new data.  To do this, ChemADVISOR reviews existing and new regulatory and advisory sources on at least a quarterly basis to ensure data relevancy, currency, accuracy, and accessibility.  Each Regulatory Database specialist is responsible for lists that are specific to their assigned area of responsibility. Lists are updated as a source is amended and are audited once a year against the current source.  New lists are audited by different team member following their input. In addition, there are software-based technical audits performed weekly on the LOLI master database that check the data for a variety of potential inconsistencies based on definitions outlined by both the IT and Regulatory departments’ content standards.

ChemADVISOR will also be happy to schedule a private demonstration of LOLI Desktop for you. For more specific information about LOLI Database content, contact our LOLI team experts at info@chemadvisor.com.
