The new Hazard Communication Standard (Hazcom 2012) will bring the US more in line with the UN GHS based system. There is currently a transition period from 2013 to 2016 for all chemical manufacturers, importers, distributors and all employers to conform to the new standard. By June 1st, 2016 everyone must comply with the modified provisions of the final rule.
