Atrion International today announced the general availability of Compliance Guardian for Microsoft Dynamics AX. Compliance Guardian is Powered by ACE™ to enable Microsoft Dynamics users to fully leverage Atrion’s Product Compliance Solution and Managed Regulatory Content into their business processes to comply with global regulatory requirements at all stages of the product life cycle. The suite of products helps process and discrete manufacturers and distributors manage risks to brand equity and disruption of operations associated with the lack of accurate contextual product compliance information. In addition, it ensures product compliance throughout the global supply chain in a constantly-changing regulatory environment.
Silicone chemistry specialist SiVance has selected Compliance Guardian for Microsoft Dynamics as the platform to drive their regulatory programs for products and raw materials. See today’s related announcement “SiVance Selects Atrion’s Compliance Guardian for Microsoft Dynamics AX to Ensure Adherence to Global Regulations.”
Compliance Guardian for Microsoft Dynamics AX is an out-of-the-box solution that provides product and raw material compliance assessment, document authoring and management, automated labeling, substance volume tracking and extensive reporting capabilities. At the core is Atrion’s trusted and up-to-date Managed Regulatory Content that consists of data on over 300,000 chemical substances, 15,000 regulatory phrases in over 44 languages, 7,500 proprietary rules, and 100 templates spanning 50 plus countries. Microsoft Dynamics AX users can now easily and cost-effectively create, publish and provide localized compliance documents such as SDSs, Workplace Safety Information, Safe Handling Instructions and product labels within the familiar Microsoft Dynamics AX environment.
Catalyst legislations such as REACH, GHS and RoHS, as well as customer demand are making environmental responsibility an increasingly important factor in everything from materials procurement to distribution. Noncompliance creates substantial financial and safety risks that impact the entire supply chain, including the inability to import and export, sell globally, and meet customer demand. Product compliance is essential to profitable growth.
“At Microsoft, we are committed to technology innovation that helps organizations around the world better manage their impact on the environment,” said Mike Ehrenberg, distinguished engineer, Microsoft Business Solutions. “Atrion’s solution satisfies our customers’ needs in the area of product compliance.”
“Compliance Guardian for Microsoft Dynamics is another example of how Atrion is continuing to execute on our Powered by ACE strategy, allowing us to deliver embedded compliance in critical business processes within Microsoft Dynamics AX.” said Frank Arcadi, VP of Product Strategy and Direction at Atrion International.
