Atrion International, a Montreal-based regulatory support firm, has released Intelligent Authoring for REACH, an updated automated tool that updates safety data sheets for compliance with the European Union’s REACH directive controlling hazardous chemical substances. The tool is designed to help companies in identifying chemical substances that need to be registered. The product also screens products that are exempt from REACH registration.
The latest release of the REACH tool is designed to ease the burden of REACH compliance with sever major enhancements that address REACH and GHS requirements:
New safety data sheet format
REACH annex lists
GHS classification as per the Purple Book
“This new release offers flexibility to leverage investments in our existing centralized systems so we can accurately document raw materials and products in preparation for REACH substance pre-registration requirements,” says Lars Borch Pedersen, head of Group Material Compliance Solution at Hempel A/S – HSE Products, an Atrion customer.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This radio show will show what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
