3E Company Introduces New Version of MSDgen MSDS Authoring System MSDgen 5.07 offers new features to further streamline the development of hazard communication documentation Tuesday, April 01, 2008 — 3E Company®, the leading provider of Environmental Health and Safety (EH&,S) compliance and information management services, today introduced MSDgen 5.07, a new version of its MSDgen Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) authoring system. MSDgen 5.07 offers customers several new features and enhancements to further assist in the development and maintenance of globally compliant and reliable hazard communication documentation.

These new features include:

* Enhanced toxicological and ecological sections whereby MSDgen now selects the most relevant data to present on a customer's MSDS documents.

* Automatic loading of the ARC (After Reaction Composition) tab with only those ingredients that are not specified as reactants. Any ingredients declared as reactants are automatically reacted out of the ARC.

* An updated Ariel Import process which enables the utilization of multiple processors in cases where multiple processors are available on the server where the database is installed.

* A new Rule exclusion option to support the exclusion of the various GHS categories that are not being adopted by certain countries like Korea. MSDgen 5.07 can be used to develop a variety of hazard communication documents that meet international regulatory compliance and business requirements.

It provides full support of hazard communication, classification, and labeling directives to generate globally-compliant MSDSs and label documents as well as business/user definable documents, such as technical data sheets, product data sheets, hazard summaries, and product stewardship summaries. 'We understand that each of our customers has a unique set of EH&,S requirements and challenges.

In developing MSDgen 5.07, we enhanced our leading MSDS authoring system to address these unique business requirements and provide our customers with a comprehensive tool for efficiently and consistently authoring globally compliant HazComm documents,' said Clark VanScoder, Vice President, HSE Systems, 3E Company. MSDgen 5.07 supports the award-winning Ariel™ chemical regulatory data, which is also used by 70% of the world's top chemical manufacturers.

The content is structured into fully normalized data structures to be used in MSDgen's automatic classifications and mixture-level estimations, as well as presented on the appropriate hazard communication documents. The data provides live substance links for physical and chemical properties, toxicology data such as LD50s, dangerous goods information as well as international regulatory and advisory data. MSDgen 5.07 is available now.

 ,Pricing is based on number of users, phrase library languages, content modules, including data, rules, and regulatory templates, and implementation services including configuration, data migration, and installation.
