Chemical industry innovators have been responsible for major product breakthroughs in a wide variety of industries throughout history. Today, other industry sectors still look to the chemical industry to drive key product advancements such as improving petroleum products and by-products, coatings, inks, pharmaceuticals and agricultural yields. The industry’s contributions span the world, but there is continued pressure to implement strategies and technologies that optimize chemical supply chains. The United Nations Conference on Environment and Development in 1992, also referred to as the “Earth Summit,” initiated the movement toward “eco-efficiency” in the handling and disposal of toxic chemicals, building worldwide momentum for governments and corporations to carefully re-examine their regulations and policies regarding chemicals in the global supply chain.
Subsequently, the industry has seen bi-yearly regulatory updates, modifications and new compliance requirements that have dramatically increased the need for corresponding labeling solutions. Companies are looking for ways to centralize, integrate, automate, and optimize applications across multiple locations while allowing for a tremendous amount of flexibility and variability in labeling. In addition, efficiency, cost savings, accuracy, and reliability in labeling can benefit businesses in today’s regulatory environment like never before.
