BIG puts safety first in its mission. We acknowledge the severity of COVID-19 and request our employees to work from home. We are however also an emergency centre and therefore there will always be a minimum number of staff present at BIG to answer all emergency calls and any other urgent questions.

In urgent matters you can always call BIG and your contact person will return the call as soon as possible. We would like to ask for your understanding in these exceptional circumstances should you experience any delays.

 Together against the spread of COVID-19 so we can protect all.



BIG is a vzw (a non-profit organisation) and aims to collect and evaluate information on dangerous substances to aid companies and governments in their quest for a better and safer environment.

More and more companies cannot see the wood for the trees anymore. New legislations are succeeding rapidly and it becomes ever more difficult to keep and stay up-to-date on everything all the time. Especially where it concerns legislation on HAZMAT which has undergone some serious changes in the past few years. Also an increasing number of companies see their markets expand all over the world and are in need of some solid advice. BIG vzw is the information centre on dangerous goods and can offer besides an exhaustive quality database also the expertise and technical means to support your EHS department in their endeavour to establish a safe working environment with your best interests at heart.


On the subject of dangerous substances in Europe recently 2 major legislations came into effect. The REACH Regulation that regulates the registration of pure substances and the CLP Regulation on classification, labeling and packaging of substances and mixtures.
