A Computerized Version of the U.S. Coast Guard's CHRIS Hazardous Chemical Data Manual

Over two decades, the U.S. Coast Guard developed a series of manuals collectively called the Chemical Hazards Response Information System (CHRIS) to assist decision making in emergencies involving accidental releases of chemicals on land or water. The cornerstone of the CHRIS system is the Hazardous Chemical Data Manual, which provides two pages of highly detailed information on over 1200 hazardous substances. An electronic edition of this 20-pound, 2700-page manual called PC CHRIS is now available.


  • A database of hazard-related properties on over 1200 substances.
  • Access to the 10 introductory chapters of the CHRIS manual which supplements the database by providing definitions and explanations, conversion factors, and a guide to the compatibility of chemicals.
  • Easy selection of a chemical by scanning an alphabetized list, or by inputting a common name or synonym (even approximately), one or more fragments of the name, or a UN/DOT 4-digit I.D., CAS registry number, or 3-letter code assigned by the Coast Guard.
  • On-screen help messages, full screen viewing of database information, flexible data output and extensive printer support.
  • Machine Requirements: PC-compatible (386 or better recommended), operating under MS-DOS 3.1 or later, and having a hard disk drive with 3 megabytes of free space and one floppy drive.
