Ariel - Expert Rules, Phrases and Templates Modem
Business decisions related to the manufacturing and marketing of products around the globe require comprehensive, up-to-date chemical and regulatory information to quickly meet compliance requirements and provide accurate documentation for every product depending on its composition, where it is produced and how it is used and distributed. Ariel Expert Rules apply logic to the substance database in SAP EHS Management with the aim of creating safety data sheets and labels that satisfy country-specific regulations.
Ariel Expert Rules, combined with the power of Ariel global chemical regulatory content, multi-lingual phrase libraries and a comprehensive set of (M)SDS templates, give companies the ability to:
- Improve the time it takes to introduce new products to market or existing products to new markets
- Manage increased regulatory pressures and customer requirements
- Enhance the quality of documentation by eliminating manual processes
- Reduce the burden on the compliance professional
- Decrease the risk of delays and fines due to inaccurate documentation
Designed to help ensure regulatory compliance for final products, the Rules can be run against mixtures and components. The Rules programs make determinations using basic data such as physical-chemical properties, toxicological test results and safety data in the same way an MSDS author would. The end result can automatically populate sections of various MSDSs and other documents that are mandated by a regulation.
The Ariel Rules sets eliminate variations in MSDS authoring, as well as human error, and ensure that the country-specific requirements for various outputs are met consistently.
Using Ariel Multi-lingual Phrases also saves time and improves the quality of documentation. Available in dozens of languages, Phrases provide an efficient method for global companies to simplify the creation and authoring of MSDSs, labels and other documents by automatically translating standard health and safety phrases into multiple languages. The library provides thousands of phrases, including titles of regulations; Risk and Safety, and GHS phrases with hazard and precautionary statements, classifications and classification categories; value-type phrases such as skin notations, ceiling values, TWA, OEL phrases; and exposure scenario phrases.
Regional and country-specific MSDS and label document templates round out the solution, further simplifying the process for creating consistent and compliant regulatory documentation.
