Changes to Risk Assessment with Extracted Data
Chemwatch provides, amongst other services, SDS Data Extraction service to many of our Clients.
Data Extraction typically covers 20-40 data-points available on most current SDS.
These include Hazard or Risk Codes, Physical properties, Dangerous Goods information, and more.
In order to provide seamless Data Extraction Service, along with SDS updates to our Clients, we have made some critical changes to the Data Structure, and it is due to be released in this update.
Historically, Chemwatch Clients have also used Self-Extraction facilities available in the Chemwatch Risk Assessment Module (COBRA/COSHHPliant), to extract data required to classify the HAZARD RATING for the purpose of Risk Calculation.
In an overwhelming number of cases, Self-Extraction was done only where Chemwatch GOLD SDS, or Data Extraction, was unavailable.
The next planned release includes the anticipated release of Risk Assessments driven by Extracted Vendor Data. These changes will only affect users that work with Extracted Vendor Data. We have put in place a priority mailbox manned by a dedicated team. If you have any queries or concerns about the upcoming changes please contact Chemwatch: firstname.lastname@example.org and include the reference “VGD Changes” in the Subject Header.

“VGD Changes” related enquiries will be processed as a matter of priority.
2D Barcode Support (Datamatrix)
2D Barcodes are becoming increasingly popular for inventory management purposes. Chemwatch has always supported 2D barcodes (QR and DataMatrix) for basic label creation, where the Barcode Value would be manually inputted or assigned by users.
Now, Chemwatch is introducing full 2D Barcode support for SiSoT where the following functions and features will be supported:
Please note that for SiSoT, the choice of Barcode type is applied globally; in other words, once you pick 2D Barcode as a barcode type, the system will treat the entire system as such, and 2D barcodes will be used throughout the inventory system.
Container Owner Dialogue — Driven by Folder Permissions
Moving forward, it will be possible to re-assign Container Ownership to any User with Read or Read-Write permissions to the Folder where Container is stored.
This will ensure that persons with “NO ACCESS” to a Folder cannot “own” Containers that are stored in that very folder.
SiSoT Mode — Extra Columns to choose from
In manifest (default) mode there are many columns that display data that is important for overall Chemicals Management (e.g. DG Class, CAS No, etc.)
SiSoT mode, historically, did not have that data available, but rather, focused on Inventory data points, such as Container properties, quantity, size, etc.
With this latest release, SiSoT view will make optional columns available for users to configure their own “view”.
In addition to all existing columns, the following will also be available for users to choose from:
SiSoT Container Properties — new Units added
In addition to the existing units of measure available in SiSoT, recently we have been working on adding several other units our Clients find important.
These include IMPERIAL units:
Ton (t) — Solids
Quarter (qr) — Solids
Pint (pt) — Liquids
Quart (qt) — Liquids
Gill (gi) — Liquids
Also, several US (United_States customary units) will be added:
Cubic foot (ft3) — Liquids
US Gill (gi) — Liquids
US Pint (pt) — Liquids
US Guart (qt) — Liquids
Unit conversion, as with all other units, will be automatic.
