What is GHS?

  • GHS stands for Global Harmonized System (GHS) and  is a worldwide initiative for standardizing and harmonizing the classification and labeling of chemicals, it serves the protection of human health and the environment.

 

 

The goals of GHS

  • Creating a common unified system of classification and labeling of chemicals in order to protect people and the environment from the harmful effects of hazardous substances and mixtures.
  • Inform users about hazardous materials by standard icons and texts on packages, labels and safety data sheets.

What does this mean for you?

  • You will find changes of the classifications on the safty data sheets and labels of our products.
  • With the implementation of the CLP regulation, there will be new clasification elements on packaging, labels and safety data sheets e.g. Hazard pictograms and safety instructions.
  • The changes will be introduced gradually and not immediately implemented on all packaging, labels and safety data sheets simultaneously.
  • All products will be delivered with the new GHS markings as of 01.06.2015.
