Our latest software update for opesus EHSM Smart Input (ESI) comes with some improvements and fixes. The biggest improvement is the addition of our “Compliance Data Object Search”. This makes the search function more powerful and user friendly as it is now more adaptable to your needs. As part of ESI, the search function will be updated and improved on a continuous basis.
Tested, checked, and released. The opesus EHS Product Notification software creates poison centre dossiers in the Poison Centres Notification (PCN) format.
In other words, you can now create and download dossiers from your SAP system. After that, simply upload the dossier to the ECHA Submission Portal. This way, you fulfill the requirements of Art. 45 and Annex VIII to the CLP regulation for your product portfolio.
In less than a month, opesus will be attending the SAP EHS and Product Compliance Annual Conference 2019 at SAP North American Headquarters in Newtown Square, PA.
At 1:00 pm on Tuesday, September 17th, opesus will take the stage and give a short introduction on our software.
To give you more insights and a specific use case, John Falk will be co-presenting “Huntsman – Poison Centre Notifications (CLP Art. 45) –Simple & Efficient Solution using SAP’s Product Safety Software” on Tuesday, September 17th at 3:15 pm.
Do you want to talk to us directly? We will have a dedicated meeting room during the conference. Come by if you’d like to speak with us, learn more about our software, or just say hi.

Word has it that there is a possible postponement of the January 2020 deadline for notification of consumer use products to the poison centers under the CLP Art. 45 regulation. We too have received hints of the shift from January 2020 to January 2021 from various stakeholders who attended the CARACAL meeting in July such as ECHA, as well as from some of our customers who are active in industry associations, and national poison centers.
How does this affect my company?
On 28 June 2019, the TOP 100 most innovative companies in Germany were honored at the Deutscher Mittelstands Summit (German SME Summit) in the Jahrhunderthalle Frankfurt – and we were there! German TV-Moderator Linda Zervakis led through the entertaining evening. Alongside her, German science journalist and author Ranga Yogeshwar, Hesse’s Minister of Economic Affairs Tarek Al-Wazir, and former Federal President Christian Wulff, the scientific director of the award, Prof. Dr. Nikolaus Franke, spoke at the event.
The easy implementation of Art. 45 of the CLP regulation is not a simple matter, as the well-attended workshop of the Chem-Academy on May 15th once again demonstrated. The event, aimed at product safety managers, consisted of a practical workshop, in addition to presentations from industry experts and the authorities involved. Alexander Wegener, CEO of opesus AG, and Markus Pogrzeba, Product Manager at opesus, were able to share their know-how and experience as workshop leaders and lecturers.
opesus is attending the SAPPHIRE NOW & ASUG Annual Conference in Orlando next week. Reach out and say ‘hi’.
John Falk will be co-presenting “Poison Centre Notifications: Huntsman’s Simple and Efficient Solution Using Product Safety with SAP Environment, Health, and Safety Management” on Tuesday at 3:00 pm. There are three good reasons to attend:
- You can learn about CLP Article 45 for Poison Centre Notifications and best practices
- We will present the opesus solution and explain how it can help your business maintain compliance simply and efficiently
- John will tell a joke (laughter to be determined)
See you there!
Our very first event was a huge success! Focused on the topic of CLP Article 45 Poison Centre Notifications for SAP customers and supported by the German Chemical Industry Association (VCI), we had a great turnout of 93 attendees – more than double of what we expected when we started planning a year ago.
Every year at opesus, we pass on the Christmas cheer to those in need. Instead of gifting our customers opesus-branded goodies, we donate to a charity organization in their name. For 2018, opesus donated to the Himalayan Stove Project – an organization that is transforming the lives of residents in mountainous Nepal, one clean cooking stove at a time.
opesus received the Technology Fast 50 Award – for the 3rd time in 3 years
opesus received the Technology Fast 50 Award, which recognizes Germany’s fastest growing technology companies, for the 3rd time in a row. The rankings are based on the percentage growth in sales over the past four fiscal years [2014-2017]. opesus’ self-developed software products, which complement and extend existing SAP sustainability solutions, contributed significantly to this growth in sales.
- With opesus EHS Product Notification (EPN), companies comply with their legal obligation to report their chemical products to relevant authorities, ensuring compliance in an efficient manner.
- The opesus EHSM Smart Input solution significantly accelerates data management for customers of SAP EHSM (Environment, Health and Safety Management),saving time and money.
- The opesus Product Compliance Essentials provides a rapid and standard implementation of SAP EHSM Product Compliance.
Alexander Wegener, CEO of opesus, views opesus’ current position positively. He explains, “Right now the topic of product notifications according to CLP Article 45 is entering a hot phase. The deadline 1.1.2020 is relevant for producers, importers, and downstream users who place mixtures for use by consumers on the market. These companies need to be ready to comply with their legal obligations. This is the reason why our team put a lot of effort into developing our opesus EPN. It enhances SAP EHS and is an efficient tool to ensure compliance easily. With the deadline approaching fast, we expect further significant growth of our client base. This base already consists of many well-known companies. Right now, all our clients combined employ over 1.2 million people. That is quite an impact for a small company and we feel honored by their trust. It is a huge driver for us and the core of our business philosophy.”
“Many fast-growing companies from Germany have a strong standing in highly innovative technology sectors. Responsible for that are courageous entrepreneurs, who are consequently pursuing their visions,” explains Dr. Andreas Gentner, Partner and Head of Technology, Media & Telecommunications EMEA at Deloitte. “We wish to reward extraordinary achievements for the technology region Germany with the Fast 50 award.”
We at opesus are very proud to win this prestigious award the third year in a row!
