Seagull Scientific to Present Global Harmonization System (GHS) Regulatory Webinar, Sponsored by National Association of Chemical Distributors


BELLEVUE, Wash., USA — September 10, 2014 — Seagull Scientific, manufacturer of BarTender® labeling software, today announced that it will present the next in a series of regulatory webinars sponsored by the National Association of Chemical Distributors (NACD), on September 17. Titled “The Special Challenges of GHS Labeling in Chemical Distribution,” the webinar will feature Elizabeth Sinclair, Vertical Marketing Manager at Seagull.


NACD elected Seagull into its association as a non-chemical handling affiliate at its executive board meeting in August. Seagull is the only major manufacturer of labeling, barcoding and RFID software chosen for membership in NACD.


“GHS labeling presents a complex set of considerations to chemical distribution,” said Sinclair. “It’s expected that only half of US companies will have their GHS program in place before the OSHA deadlines, and with enforcement rates higher than they’ve ever been, chemical distributors — whether they operate in the US, or import into the US — can find themselves caught in a GHS implementation gap between their customers and suppliers. This webinar will clarify several of the gray areas that may be complicating GHS adoption for chemical facilities, and causing delays in compliance.”


Topics to be discussed in the webinar include:


  •        Labeling of proprietary, branded custom blends for sectors such as the oilfield services industry
  •        GHS color printing requirements in a monochrome printing world
  •        Resource management: Merging existing ERP, WMS and EH&S systems with the new standards
  •        Using GHS initiatives as a catalyst for new supply chain efficiencies
  •        Neither Global nor Harmonized: Import and export GHS labeling issues


The NACD webinar will take place Wednesday, September 17, at 12:00 p.m., Eastern Daylight Time. To register, or for more information, please visit:
