This news update regarding the Best practice in developing GHS conforming labels, is brought to you by

Developing and maintaining a compliant hazard communication system is challenging. Detailed knowledge of the regulatory landscape is essential to ensure conformance with the myriad of regulatory obligations impacting businesses today.

Global companies, in particular, must have a comprehensive plan in place. They must be privy to all changes in country requirements and meet these head-on in order to maintain compliance while doing business on an international scale. 

Particular attention must be paid to the UN Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS). While the initial premise behind GHS was to create harmonisation, countries are increasingly customising their adoption of the system. Additionally, many countries have set specific safety data sheet (SDS) and label template requirements, which means that the format of documents and labels takes careful research and planning to ensure that all specifications are followed.
