Th view that opens is called a graph. The products (green) and processes (yellow) are the same as in the flow visualizations (Mattermaps). They are connected by lines, which tell us how products and processes are associated to one another.

Spot the copper wire, in purple. You'll see a few companies that produce copper wire connected to it. 

You can see a number behind the names. That is the number of regulations that may apply to this particular manufacturer. The number is contextual to the process, the product and the location in question.

Pick one of the manufacturers and right-click. Once you do, the wheel menu opens up. Click on "info" to open up the information panel.
