Enterprise Communication Suite™ for Hazardous Chemicals

In the chemicals industry the Enterprise Communication Suite™ for Hazardous Chemicals module allows clients to comply with labeling legislation, dictating what risk and safety phrases as well as images need to be displayed on the label. The product is also fully Unicode compliant, which means that clients can display the risk and safety phrases in many languages.

The system comes with a pre-packaged database containing the risk and safety phrases in the relevant European languages compliant to the CHIP-4 standard.

This enables multi-lingual labels to be created quickly and efficiently when hazardous chemicals need to be transported across several countries. For example, one client uses it to print 24 languages on one label to avoid re-labeling hazardous chemicals during their movements around Europe.

The Enterprise Communication Suite™ for Hazardous Chemicals is also able to support the symbols and phrases of the new system called Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS), which addresses classification of chemicals by types of hazard and proposes harmonized hazard communication elements, including labels and safety data sheets.
