Chemwatch is Changing!

June 04, 2013

Facilities Services

Chemwatch, Lewis & Clark’s search engine vendor for material safety data sheets (MSDS) is adopting a new format; tentatively by the end of June.  Chemwatch Gold 3 (CG3), the current version, will be replaced by Gold FFX (GFFX).  The currently CG3 version already has the capability of translating local format MSDS to Globally Harmonized System (GHS) safety data sheets (SDS).  By December 2015, all MSDS will be replaced by SDS.  In addition, GFFX will offer the capability of printing GHS compliant labels for secondary containers.  Webinar tutorials are available online.  To sign up for a tutorial, contact Risk Management at x7872 or tomlin@lclark.edu.
