BACKGROUND: Ann Arbor based, A V Systems, Inc., incorporated in 1981, is a pioneer in the environmental compliance software field. Founding members combined extensive backgrounds in applied computer technology in the pharmaceutical, chemical and private industry, as well as 15 years legislative compliance experience gained with the EPA.

In 1988, the company developed its flagship product, MIRS (Material Inventory Report System) as a DOS-based data management system, to address compliance issues of the EPA SARA Title III Section 312 and Section 313 regulations, which came into effect in 1987. Modules covering other EPA or OSHA regulations were added in subsequent years as the respective regulations came into place. The program was soon upgraded to a Windows version.

The current (April 2006) MIRS Version 12.10 for Windows 98/2000/ME/NT/XP is distributed on either CD ROM or through the MIRS-Online service and offers features such as wizards, e-mail integration, web display capabilities. The company prides itself on the comprehensiveness and flexibility of its product offers. Today, the MIRS software package provides modules that cover the full range of EH&S management and compliance reporting mandates: SARA, RCRA, Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act and OSHA Hazardous Communications (including MSDS). The product functions and features have also been highly regarded by our customers, as well as the industry.

Since the reporting year 1988, MIRS has been the only software on the market to receive EPA approval* for its FORM R report each year before the submittal deadline. (* EPA approval no longer required).

TECHNICAL SUPPORT: MIRS is a fully supported software program, featuring routine regulatory updates and unlimited telephone consultation with an experienced technical representative. The annual (biannual for those with FORM R) program updates ensure timely compliance with EPA and OSHA reporting requirement changes, as well as new features and other program enhancements.

A PROVEN SOLUTION: From the first stand-alone module to the more than 20 offered today, MIRS has been successfully used by thousands of facilities across the United States. In fact, our company's very first client, who began using MIRS in 1988, remains a client today.

NOW AND IN THE FUTURE: Since A V Systems began developing and producing MIRS, many competing software packages have merged or gone out of business entirely. Not only has A V Systems supported MIRS clients with timely regulatory updates and feature enhancements, but A V has also performed numerous data conversions from existing and outdated software packages into MIRS. These data conversions save companies valuable data entry time and effort, and help them maintain compliance with the OSHA Right-to-Know regulations, which require that hazardous chemical information be available for 30 years.

A V Systems, Inc., top rated by Dun and Bradstreet in its category, is wholly dedicated to addressing the data management and regulatory compliance needs of Environmental, Health & Safety professionals through its modular and integrated software.
