About change to using one-byte alphanumeric characters for product name, level name, etc. in chemSHERPA data entry support tool for articles

We will promote the conversion of local languages (double-byte characters) to one-byte alphanumeric characters in order to meet the standards with .IEC62474 (global support).

In principle, product names under product/Component information in the General Window, and Level/name in the Composition window, must be entered using one-byte alphanumeric characters. Note, however, that the error check will follow a phased implementation as shown below.
