Chemical products - send information electronically
Product information could be sent electronically to the Swedish Poisons Information Centre in any of the following formats:
ASCII Text (txt)
Microsoft Rich Text Format (rtf)
If you have another format, please contact the Poisons Centre to check if it works as well.
There has to be one file for each product.
If you send information about more than 10 products you also have to create a table in Word-format (see below), which helps us to attach each document file to the right product name and company when it is put into our data base.
In this way our staff quickly finds the right information about a product, when it is needed in the poisons information service. This is very important since it is the name of the product that is indicated when calling the Poisons Centre after poisoning incidents.
To facilitate for the Poisons Centre in handling the product information please indicate whether the products are for household or industrial use.
How to create the table:
(It is still possible to create a parameter file as earlier, if you are used to that!)
The company Zytx Swe are going to send information about their products in Word format. The name of the manufacturer is Zytx Ltd.
The product names are Clean extra, Remove fast and Quick and easy. The files are called cleanx.doc, remove.doc and quickeasy.doc.
The table will look like this:
N.B. The name of the product and company will be put into the Poisons Centre’s database in exactly the same way as it is written in the table. It is important that the name of the company written on the label is the same as in the table and of course also in the information sent to the Poisons Centre!
The date format must be yyyy-mm-dd!
2. Send the table and the product information, either by e-mail, on a cd-rom or dvd.
