Cerilliant Introduces New GHS Compliant Overwrap Style Label that Conforms to New OSHA Guidelines and Provide Hazard Information at Point-of-Use

ROUND ROCK, TEXAS – March 3, 2014 – Cerilliant, the global leader in certified reference standards for critical analytical testing applications, announced the introduction of new overwrap style labels that meet the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS) guidelines adopted by the U.S. Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA). The regulatory deadline for GHS implementation is June 1, 2015. The regulations apply to manufacturers, distributors, and importers as well as any employer that receives chemicals.

Designed in-house, Cerilliant’s new GHS compliant overwrap label reflects their commitment to continuously improve the customer experience while meeting the requirements of the new safety standard. The new overwrap style labels provide GHS pictograms that appear on the outer face and allow end users the ability to easily lift the leading edge of the label to uncover product-specific hazard information including H-codes and P-codes. Cerilliant’s new GHS compliant overwrap labels also offer customers the following added benefits:

• Hazard and safety information is now available at point-of-use, facilitating a laboratory’s compliance to the new regulations
• Assists employers in meeting regulatory requirements to provide information to their employees about the hazardous chemicals in their workplace
• Labels and labeling process have been qualified. Labels have been tested for all storage conditions including -80°C
• A unique color identifier allows laboratories to rapidly distinguish between Native and Stable-Isotope-Labeled Standards avoiding accidental mishaps in adding an incorrect standard
• Label can be easily removed and transferred to project documentation for critical material traceability and to avoid transcription errors

“Development of our new GHS labels provided us an opportunity not only to meet the new OSHA guidelines but also to improve the customer experience. Continuous improvement and customer focus are important parts of our culture, and that is reflected in our new GHS labels,” commented Sherri Pogue, President of Cerilliant.

Existing lots of standards will be re-labeled with the new GHS compliant overwrap labels throughout 2014. Customers will continue to receive lots with previous generation labels until existing inventory has been depleted or re-labeled. Cerilliant is committed to transitioning all inventory to the new GHS label stock by the end of 2014.
