    CHEMDOX uses correct technical terms which were taken directly from the legal texts. This also applies to all translations. The CHEMDOX phrase catalog exists in many languages.

     

    Phrases that contain variable (substance) data from the database are also included (using placeholders such as: "store at temperatures not exceeding {$MAX_STORE_TEMP}").

     

    The phrases are stored in the catalogue in such a way that they can be used as a heading, as sentence, as "proclamation", or e.g. in a bulleted list.

    e.g.

    1. When using do not eat, drink or smoke.
    2. When using do not eat, drink or smoke!
    3. WHEN USING DO NOT EAT; DRINK OR SMOKE
    4. as part of a flowing bulleted list:
      • keep away from combustible material / when using do not eat, drink or smoke / keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking
