Vicinity Manufacturing Teams with Lisam System to Deliver GHS Compliance Solutions

Vicinity and ExESS Deliver Automated GHS-Compliant Safety Data Sheets and Labels for Formula Manufacturers.

Marietta, GA, September 02, 2015 --( Vicinity Manufacturing™ is pleased to announce the recent collaboration with Lisam Systems, whose United States headquarters are located in Bryan, Texas. With the release of Vicinity software version 4.11, an integration to Lisam’s ExESS® product now comes standard as part of Vicinity’s functionality.

Lisam Systems provides software and service solutions for Environmental Health and Safety compliance management in the chemical, energy, cosmetics, detergent, paint and coverings, and special chemicals industry sectors. ExESS® is Lisam Systems’ flagship software for global regulatory compliance solutions in Environmental Health & Safety.

This past June marked the most recent deadline for US manufacturers transition to the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS) classification system. For some manufacturing companies across the nation, the changeover increased the complexity of compliance reporting, mandated a change in internal processes, and imposed a need to utilize outside resources, such as Vicinity and ExESS.

Built on the same Microsoft .NET technology, Vicinity Manufacturing and Lisam Systems have partnered to integrate Lisam’s enterprise-wide solution ExESS®, a safety data sheet (SDS) authoring solution, with Vicinity Manufacturing’s formula-based manufacturing software. Reading data from Vicinity, ExESS is able to expedite compliance by automating the creation, management, and distribution of GHS-compliant safety data sheets and labels.

Randy Smith, CEO and Cofounder of Vicinity Manufacturing summarizes by saying, “There is a real need for procedure changes within many chemical manufacturing operations. Not all of our clients have a team of compliance officers to dedicate the resources needed to produce and manage the reporting specifications of the new GHS requirements. By Using Vicinity and ExESS, clients are able to streamline this process using minimal internal resources.”

Vicinity clients can now synchronize Vicinity items, components, and formulas with ExESS products, product ID’s, chemical compositions, daily sales orders, and contacts in order to auto-email product SDSs. Using a single login, Vicinity users aren’t required to login to ExESS just like ExESS EH&S users aren’t required to login to Vicinity.

The combined solution delivers an automated, transparent, and customizable GHS classification and phrase rules engine with integrated regulatory and transportation content and compliant safety data sheets (SDS), labels, and templates for all major commercial markets in 50 languages. ExESS manages chemical inventories and substance classification lists, as well as performs automated classification and transport calculations.
