SDS Authoring

The MIRS™ (M)SDS module offers many features that ease the task of Authoring and Distributing SDSs. You can create SDSs with text built entirely out of selected phrases or you can enter free-form text.

Use the SDS Authoring Wizard to quickly generate new SDSs:

  • Enter the ingredients and the Wizard will generate the SDS from available data.
  • SDSs are generated from the supplied library of 55,000 phrase-based SDSs and MSDSs of pure chemicals and/or from other SDSs you have previously authored.
  • Three levels of user verses Wizard phrase selection decision making are available.
  • Phrases are ranked and classified to aid automatic phrase selection.
  • The Wizard learns from previous user phrase selection decisions to improve automatic phrase selection.

You can also author SDSs through an easy to use data entry window. The MIRS™ (M)SDS module provides many selection lists which speed the creation of SDS documents:

  • Regulated Chemical database.
  • RCRA code list, DOT Hazardous Materials Table, GHS Classifications, Risk and Safety Phrases**, etc.
  • Acute toxicity animal test results and ecotoxicity aquatic species test results data.
  • Extensive customizable phrase library, including GHS H and P phrases as well as ANSI recommended phrases.

The (M)SDS module also supports flexible SDS content:

  • Include trade names, part numbers, container sizes, VOC and HAP/volume content, Reference numbers, RTECs numbers, UPC/EAN numbers, many optional physical properties, and more.
  • Creation of SDSs in US OSHA GHS and European Union GHS formats.
  • Legacy support for old OSHS 9-part formats and ANSI, Canadian, and European formats.
  • Easily update older 9 or 16-part MSDSs** to GHS SDSs.
  • Ample user-defined fields to add both fields and fields labels in each SDS section.
  • Include your company's logo.
  • Include standard HazMat labels, such as GHS, HMIS III, NFPA or create your own.
  • Standard policy information or disclaimers.

** In June 2015, the OSHA 9-Part, ANSI Z400.1, and the original European MSDS formats become officially obsolete and are superceded by the GHS Safety Data Sheet.
In June 2019, the Canadian WHMIS 1988 MSDS format also becomes obsolete and will be replaced by the Canadian GHS SDS format.
MIRS will continue to support these formats for archived MSDSs.

MIRS™ provides dozens of options to customize your SDSs appearance, ranging from fonts, print size, spacing, colors, graphics, and characters.

The (M)SDS module also offers flexible means of distribution:

  • View or print.
    • Print SDSs in any of the various formats, as well as NFPA, HMIS or custom labels.
