I took a look at this also, my stockroom manager was familiar with it. -

It is really interesting for nitric because the label elements vary based on concentration. - From 90% (fuming) to 0.1 M you get different elements for the same CAS number - how would this program know? - Looks like they populated it for a 20 to 30% solution, which only carries the corrosive pictogram. - I would want to populate the info myself if I used the program.

You can save them as files and so you could generate them for things you label often.

It's not clear where their automatic GHS designations (based on CAS numbers) come from at this Avery site (for example, their nitric acid label doesn't include an "oxidizer" or "irritant" designation), but it's interesting to see that Avery is breaking into the GHS label market...

They note that "Did you know? You are responsible for assuring the accuracy of your GHS and Safety Labels"...
