IIMAK Resin Ribbons Approved for BS5609 with FLEXcon® DRUMcal™ Labels

IIMAK's SP330 & DC300 Ruby Red and Safety Red combinations have passed BS5609 Section 3 testing for GHS compliance with three FLEXcon® DRUMcal™ receivers, 21023, 51932, 21043  used in hazardous container labeling. 

On June 1, 2015, all manufacturers and distributors were mandated to comply with the revised Hazard Communication Standard (HCS). This includes reclassifying chemicals and producing GHS formatted labels and SDSs. For shipments traveling over international waters, the IMDG (International Maritime Dangerous Goods) requires a BS5609 certification.  

The approval of IIMAK ribbons on the FLEXcon labels broadens the range of BS5609 approved solutions that include IIMAK ribbons for printing. This strengthens IIMAK's commitment to making it easy for customers to do business with IIMAK, by providing additional pre-approved solutions to be able to offer to end users.  IIMAK ribbons are also approved for BS5609 on MACtac FCD6914, MACtac BDE6914, and Avery Fasson 79572, 72197, Primax IS277.
