About A V Systems, Inc.
Ann Arbor based, A V Systems, Inc., incorporated in
1981, is a pioneer in the environmental compliance software field.
Founding members combined extensive backgrounds in applied computer
technology in the pharmaceutical, chemical and private industry,
as well as 18 years legislative compliance experience gained with
In 1988, the company developed its flagship product, MIRS (Material
Inventory Report System) as a DOS-based data
management system, to address compliance issues of the EPA SARA
Title III Section 312 and Section 313 regulations, which came into effect in 1987.
Modules covering other EPA or OSHA regulations were added in subsequent
years as the respective regulations came into place. The program was soon
upgraded to a Windows version.
The current (April 2015) MIRS Version 21.10 for Windows 8 / 7 / VISTA / XP
is distributed on CD ROM, website download, or through the MIRS-Online
service and offers features such as wizards, e-mail integration,
web display capabilities. The company prides itself on the comprehensiveness
and flexibility of its product offers. Today, the MIRS software
package provides modules that cover the full range of EH&S management
and compliance reporting mandates: SARA, RCRA, Clean Air Act, Clean
Water Act and OSHA Hazardous Communications (including SDS / MSDS). The
product functions and features have also been highly regarded by
our customers, as well as the industry.
Since the reporting year 1988, MIRS
has been the only software on the market
to receive EPA approval* for its FORM R report each year before the
submittal deadline. (* while EPA approval is no longer required, MIRS generates electronic formats identical to EPA standards for SARA reporting).
TECHNICAL SUPPORT: MIRS is a fully supported software program,
featuring routine regulatory updates and unlimited telephone consultation
with an experienced technical representative. The annual (biannual
for those with FORM R) program updates ensure timely compliance
with EPA and OSHA reporting requirement changes, as well as new
features and other program enhancements.
A PROVEN SOLUTION:
From the first stand-alone module
to the more than 20 offered today, MIRS has been successfully
used by thousands of facilities across the United States. In fact,
our company's very first client, who began using MIRS in
1988, remains a client today.
NOW AND IN THE FUTURE:
Since A V Systems began developing
and producing MIRS, many competing software packages
have merged or gone out of business entirely. Not only has A V Systems
supported MIRS clients with timely regulatory updates and
feature enhancements, but A V has also performed numerous data
conversions from existing and outdated software packages into MIRS.
These data conversions save companies valuable data entry time and
effort, and help them maintain compliance with the OSHA Right-to-Know
regulations, which require that hazardous chemical information be
available for 30 years.
A V Systems, Inc.,
top rated by Dun and Bradstreet in its category, is wholly
dedicated to addressing the data management and regulatory compliance
needs of Environmental, Health & Safety professionals through its
modular and integrated software.
