"Our customers depend on IHS for single-point access to critical information such as safety best practices and instruction, and this is exactly what the partnership with CI provides."
IHS Inc. (NYSE: IHS), a leading global source of critical information and insight, today announced a new partnership agreement with The Chlorine Institute (CI), adding CI’s safety and technical publications to be accessible globally via the IHS content platforms. CI is the technical trade association of companies involved in the safe production, distribution and use of chlorine, sodium and potassium hydroxides and sodium hypochlorite, and the distribution and use of hydrogen chloride.
Under the partnership, CI content covering the following areas: Safe Production, Handling and Packaging; Health and the Environment; Emergency Planning and Response; and Properties of Chemicals and Analytical Techniques can be accessed as part of an expansive collection of more than 100 million technical documents covering engineering standards and related industry and technical knowledge. CI materials will continue to be available directly from the CI Bookstore.
IHS gives engineers, scientists, researchers, product management and marketing professionals advanced research and knowledge discovery capabilities and a single point-of-access to the most extensive collection of technical knowledge, allowing them to make fast, informed decisions across a product lifecycle. The integration of CI content with IHS will promote safety stewardship, accelerate research and knowledge discovery and eliminate the need for chlor-alkali industry professionals and their customers to search across multiple data sources and systems with multiple logins.
