Xinhua reports:

European Union (EU) member states on Monday agreed to align EU legislation on classification, labelling and packaging of chemical substances and mixtures with the U.N. Globally Harmonized System (GHS).


The GHS regulation, which has already been approved by the European Parliament, will enter into force after being published in the Official Journal of the EU.


The regulation will replace the current rules on classification, labelling and packaging of substances and mixtures.


Under the new rules, the deadline for substance classification will be Dec. 1, 2010 and for mixtures June 1, 2015.
