More than 1.000 mixtures now classified with DetNet!

We are very pleased to announce that the threshold of 1,000 detergent mixtures classified with DetNet was reached early 2016, showing a steady interest from companies in this joint initiative.
Up to now, 182 companies from 21 different countries applied to join DetNet, of which 155 completed the full subscription process. In total, around 245 classification experts were nominated, trained and received access to DetNet.


DetNet product scope extended!

We are glad to announce that the DetNet database has been extended!

As from today the product category alkaline bleach and its related Reference Formulations are available in the search tool. Also these Reference Formulations, as all Reference Formulations in DetNet, have been tested for skin/eye irritation/corrosion and the tests results included in the related study summaries may be used for classifying similar untested mixtures by applying bridging principles. 

Thus, DetNet can be used for laundry detergents (liquids, powders), hand dish wash detergents, all-purpose cleaners (non-extreme pH products), and alkaline bleach, both consumer and professional products.


DetNet membership is successfully and constantly increasing: 148 companies from 21 different countries have already joined DetNet!
