The Finnish Safety and Chemicals Agency (Tukes) has selected Innofactor in a public procurement competition as the provider for the chemical data digital management (KemiDigi) system and related services. The system delivery consists of the delivery project for the new system, the conversion of the current system, and maintenance and support services and other specialist services. The system delivery is planned to be implemented during 2018. The comparison price (excluding VAT) of the procurement for the contract period is EUR 591,950.

The digitalization of chemical data will lighten the administrative burden in companies and will make it easier and faster to draft chemical data required for supervision. The change will support companies' competence and will help maintenance of chemical data important for safety, so it will be up-to-date. Customers will benefit from using data already in the system, delivering the same data to the system just once, and fulfilling their reporting duties by using the system. The authorities will benefit from having the data in one system, up-to-date, and from fulfilling their reporting duties by using the data accrued in the system. The digitalization of chemical data will also help fitting together the licensing and notifications procedures of different authorities, removing overlap and lessening the administrative burden.

"Innofactor is happy to take part in implementing this whole that has been defined as a government key project. It will provide various benefits to companies, authorities and the entire society. This deal is important for Innofactor and we can offer Innofactor's leading know-how in digitalization projects to our customer," says Sami Ensio, CEO of Innofactor.
