The GHS around the World
The GHS has been, or is in the process of being implemented, in many countries around the world, including the European Union, United States, Canada, New Zealand, Australia and Japan. GHS classifications apply both to the writing of Safety Data Sheets and physical labelling of products with pictograms. It is important to note however, that the GHS was been designed on a ‘building block’ approach and classifications are not based on universal data. This means that countries may have different classifications for the same chemical!
Does ChemAlert Incorporate GHS Principles?
ChemAlert has already incorporated and adopted these changes, as well as addressing the Codes of Practice as set up by regulatory bodies in the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia and New Zealand. You can be assured that ChemAlert addresses the classifications required by the national regulatory agencies, which came about as a result of international GHS guidelines. It is also another reminder to ensure that you do not delay in upgrading ChemAlert so that the most up to date legislative information is accessible.
