In many cases, there are dependencies between different property attributes. Examples:
- Within the old EU classification the R-phrase 45 is always linked to the hazard symbol T.
- The hazard statement H332 “Harmful if inhaled” will necessarily lead to the assigned hazard class 3.1 “Acute toxicity”.
In the new program version such dependencies can be defined. With an appropriate definition, after entering H332 the other attribute values of the property S-G-CL-EU Classification (EU-GHS) are completed automatically.
If there are no unambiguous dependencies (e.g. Acute Tox. 1 or Acute Tox. 2 for H330), only the appropriate filter sets will be offered for the relevant attributes in the lookup. This applies to dependencies between different properties as well, where the values (which are not visible to the user at this moment) are deliberately not entered automatically, but are displayed as pre-filtered selection after calling the dependent property. Example:
- If the current hazard category in property S-G-CL-EU is Acute Tox. 4, then the proposed GHS pictogram in property S-G-PIC-EU is GHS07 “Exclamation mark” (if there are no additional classifications).
Customers can create such configurations by themselves or acquire them as finished design packages.
