Label printer now BS5609 compliant

Posted July 22, 2015 by copperjack44

The Kiaro! D label printer has been recognised as producing labels compliant with the Marine Label Certification standard BS5609, ensuring labels stay put and remain legible for goods transported by sea.
Manufacturers who have to transport hazardous chemicals by sea must ensure that their labels satisfy stringent conditions. These conditions include all the vital information on the label, such as warning symbols and pictograms and health warnings, remaining clearly visible, with a minimum of colour change, even when they have been immersed in sea water for several months. The labels also have to stay firmly adhered to the container, whether subject to sand abrasion or seawater immersion.

QuickLabel’s versatile Kiaro! range of colour label printers has long led the field when it comes to virtually all types of labels, with the Kiaro! D model being well-known for use when labels have to be durable in wet, oily or dirty conditions.More information is available at

The good news for the many satisfied customers who own this digital label printer from QuickLabel Systems that the Kiaro! D has now been certified as being compliant with the BS 5609 standard for Marine Label Certification. This means that the chemical manufacturers who use sea transport can confidently print off labels for their goods knowing that they will meet the standards required, whether these are the Merchant Shipping Regulations, the International Maritime Dangerous Goods (IMDG) conditions or the Globally Harmonised System (GHS) of Classification Standards.

Of course, the rest of the Kiaro! family offers the ability to print narrow labels, (the Kiaro! 50), wide format labels, (the Kiaro! 200) or the extra wide, durable labels printed by the Kiaro! 200D.Between them, the Kiaro! range fulfils the label printing needs of an enormous and diverse variety of industries.

With compatible accessories and expert advice always on hand, it pays to investigate the advantages of owning your own, in-house label printer. Not only do you save money by printing the labels in exactly the quantities needed, but you are never in the position of having to delay dispatch of items because you are waiting for those critical label deliveries from an out-sourced supplier.
