This Web Portal is a joint venture between AgriMedia Ltd. the publisher of the New Zealand Novachem Agrichemical manual and Agcarm, the industry association for companies which manufacture, distribute and sell products that keep animals healthy and crops thriving.
The purpose of the portal is to provide Agcarm members who subscribe to the service a direct link to product safety information, either via a Safety Data Sheet (SDS) and/or a Haznote.
Distributors are required by regulation to offer product safety information to purchasers of many agrichemicals, animal health products, and other hazardous substances. They are also required to have the information accessible to employees in the workplace and emergency services. This service replaces the need to maintain a physical record of each hazardous products safety data sheet at the point of sale as it can be printed out as required. It also removes the need to continually update the physical records held.
Once logged in a subscriber can search the database for many of the hazadous substances that are sold through rural retailers in New Zealand and access their SDS’s and/or Haznotes. In most circumstances the safety information is linked directly to the manufacturers or distributors website ensuring that it is the most up-to-date information available from that company.
The subscriber has the option to print the SDS and/or Haznote or forward them by email.
If you would like to subscribe to this service please contact Mark Ross at Agcarm.
