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

The product name of Requester which was under consideration shall be as follows(2021-03-31 Revised).

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.
