3E Company, the leading provider of environmental health and safety (EH&S) compliance and information management services, today announced the initial phase of integration of its MSDgen Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) authoring system with the SAP EHS Management (SAP EHSM) system. Corporate users can now transfer formulation data from SAP EHSM into MSDgen for use in the efficient creation of MSDSs and other hazard communication documents.
3E Company created a unique data transfer enabling formulation interface specifically for the SAP EHSM system. This approach brings powerful capabilities, including the extraction of formulation data from SAP EHSM broken down into percentage units. The interface allows users to more productively author MSDSs in MSDgen while still utilizing various other applications, features and functions of SAP EHSM.
As formulation data is transferred from SAP EHSM into MSDgen, the system’s automatic calculation and classification engine will process each formula and automatically determine the regulatory classifications during the import process. This classification is based on the substances specified in the formula using 3E’s Ariel regulatory data, which is automatically associated to each of these substances. Since the process can be setup to run overnight, each day when users first access MSDgen, they are presented with a list of new and updated formulations. Users can then conveniently refer to and utilize the classifications for these materials made by MSDgen.
“Companies utilizing SAP EHS Management often face multiple challenges when authoring MSDSs and other hazard communication documents within the system, especially since the MSDS Authoring process can be quite expensive and cumbersome. MSDgen provides a proven, cost-effective, reliable and specialized solution specifically designed for excellence in MSDS authoring,” said Clark Van Scoder, Vice President, MSDgen Operations, 3E Company. “The integration of the industry leading MSDgen MSDS Authoring System with SAP EHS Management is very exciting as it offers SAP users access to MSDgen’s robust and easy to use features, while facilitating the cost-effective and efficient creation of accurate and reliable hazard communication documents based on formulation data residing in SAP EHSM.”
