Search tips (Batch search)
Standard search - search on a chemical substance
In a standard search in PRIO, you can search for chemical substances by entering chemical name, CAS Number or EC Number. If the CAS Number or EC Number is known, you may use this in the search to get an exact match. Note that only searches using complete CAS Numbers or EC Numbers are supported in the search function. Searches using parts of CAS Numbers or EC Numbers will give no hits. If you search by chemical name, you do not need to enter the entire name. A search using chemical name in PRIO takes into account both the main name and any alternative names in the language set in the tool. However, you may risk getting many hits because there may be many substances with similar names. If you search for "phenol", for example, you will get several hits with substances where the word phenol is included. You can sort your search results by substance name, CAS Number, EC Number, priority level or criteria in descending / ascending order by clicking on the headings. The "Clear search" button deletes all search results.
Batch search - search on several chemical substances at the same time
In a batch search, you can search for several substances at the same time. Only CAS Numbers or EC Numbers are allowed in the search. The numbers can be entered one after the other in a row separated by spaces or commas, alternatively can copied numbers be pasted directly into the search function. CAS Numbers in a column or in a row, from a list of chemicals in Excel, for example, can be pasted directly into a batch search. You can sort your search results by subject name, CAS Number, EC Number, priority level or criteria in descending / ascending order by clicking on the headings. The "Clear search" button deletes all search results.
Advanced search - search on properties, materials, substance groups etc.
In an advanced search, in addition to searching for chemical substances, you may also search for chemical substances by selecting from search parameters such as Criteria (properties hazardous to health and the environment), Materials, Substance groups or Product types. You may also search by Reference, which indicates which source has evaluated the substances´ inherent danger, and by Priority level. Note that if several search parameters are selected within the same drop-down menu, then the search results that meet at least one of the selected search parameters are displayed (OR-condition apply). You can sort your search results by subject name, CAS Number, EC Number, priority level or criteria in descending/ascending order by clicking on the headings.
You can combine several search parameters from different drop-down menus with the AND and OR functions. For the AND condition, substances must meet all marked search parameters. For the OR condition, one or more of the selected search parameters must be met.
Note that within a drop-down menu, the OR condition always applies.
You can refine a search result by selecting more search parameters followed by "Search". Note the exception for a combined search with selected search parameters where the chemical name has been entered in the search field. If a chemical name has been entered in the search field, the search cannot be further refined by filling in more search parameters. The "Clear search" button deletes all search results.
Limit the search
To further narrow the search, it can be combined with different filters. For example, if you only have interest in substances in chemical products in Sweden, it is advisable to use the filter "Only show substances present in the Swedish Products Register". You may also limit the search to exclude complex hydrocarbons, highly fluorinated substances (PFAS) or particularly hazardous metals (Cd, Hg and Pb compounds) so that these groups do not dominate the search results.
Search at priority level
There are two priority levels in PRIO. In addition, there are five subcategories of phasing-out substances. If you want to limit your search to only show phase-out substances in PRIO, you need to check the box for phase-out substance as well as the five subcategories of phase-out items in the drop-down menu.
Lägg till moduler (texter, bilder, länkar, mm) i innehållsytan "Mitten".
Modulerna kommer i samma ordning som de läggs till i innehållsytan, och behåller inställningar såsom typsnitt, formatering, alt-texter, med mera.
Notera att varje sida måste ha en motsvarande sida på engelska. Id måste vara samma för svenska- och engelska-sidan.
