Exis Technologies launches Hazcheck mobile app, 10 May 2012
Exis Technologies has launched a free mobile app based on its popular Hazcheck Systems. Hazcheck DGL Lite is a quick reference tool for those involved in the transport and handling of dangerous goods by sea. It gives quick and easy access to IMDG Code substance information contained in the dangerous goods list (DGL). The app can be installed onto iPhone, iPod Touch and Android devices. A Blackberry version will follow shortly.
The app has a simple interactive user interface for checking an entry in the IMDG Code dangerous goods list or index. Typing in the UN number or initial letters of a chemical name referenced in the IMDG Code displays details of the class, sub-risk (if applicable), packing group and labels for the substance or article. The application also contains useful information on each of the hazard classes.
Hazcheck Systems are compliance solutions for every link in the sea transport chain, from shippers to deep sea container lines. More information about Hazcheck Systems can be found at: www.hazcheck.com
Ken Burgess, Chairman, commented, “We supply our software systems to DG people working in the sea transport chain, and they need to process information quickly and accurately. Using DGL Lite on a mobile phone, port inspectors, container packers or anybody making on-the-spot checks can immediately verify key DG information”. The app can be installed using these links:
