EHS Integration Node
Helping clients integrate and disseminate vital EHS data
As government agencies around the world redefine industry obligations regarding environmental health and safety (EHS), with an emphasis on workplace, consumer and environmental protection, ensuring the consistency and quality of your EHS data has never been so important. The increased emphasis on providing environmental data to demonstrate compliance means that now, more than ever, companies need to share EHS data internally throughout the supply chain and with regulatory agencies.
CGI’s EHS Integration Node was built specifically to address system integration and data management challenges within the environmental health and safety domain. A .NET application proven to be an effective all-purpose EHS data exchange solution, CGI’s EHS data integration solution supports a wide range of data integration scenarios and is fully configurable and adaptable to any number of hardware and software environments.
As a result, CGI experts and the EHS Integration Node solution help clients address key governmental mandates companies need to be concerned with, including:
- European Union’s Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) regulation: Requires electronic submission of hazard and safe use data through the International Uniform Chemical Information Database (IUCLID) and requires communication of registered safe use information throughout the supply chain.
- European Union’s classification, labeling and packaging of substances and mixtures regulation (CLP regulation): Requires electronic notification of classification and labeling information for all hazardous substances regardless of tonnage and for all non-hazardous substances subject to registration under REACH when placed on the market within the European Union.
- US Environmental Protection Agency’s Moderated Transaction System (EMTS): Allows electronic submission of renewable fuels data through the EPA’s Central Data Exchange (CDX).
- US Toxic Substance Control Act’s Electronic Inventory Update Reporting 2011 rule (TSCA eIUR 2011): Requires electronic submission of toxic substance inventory data in 2011 using a web portal or XML data standard through EPA’s CDX.
Often, gathering required EHS data means accessing a variety of systems (procurement, logistics, production, formulation, hazard communication, etc) and validating the accuracy of the data prior to distributing it. This becomes even more challenging when the same data exists in multiple systems, and inconsistency can result in non-compliance.
