New labeling guidelines from worldwide safety organization UL should ensure that chemical containers are clearly marked.

When transporting hazardous chemicals by boat, there is always a chance of an accident resulting in a catastrophic spill, or causing dangerous materials to be lost at sea. New labeling guidelines from worldwide safety organization UL should ensure that such containers are clearly marked.

Under the GHS rules, packages containing dangerous goods and chemicals must be able to withstand three months of ocean water immersion. UL's "Marine Use" labeling certification program includes marks that signal that packaged goods are adhering to these standards.

It can be a challenge to update product labels to meet varying global standards. But it is crucial to maintain the safety of the global chemical supply chain. An Enterprise Labeling Solution can make it easier to make quick and dynamic labeling updates as the law requires.
