APEC’s Chemical Dialogue has developed two reports for endorsement by APEC Ministers – the first on principles for best practice chemical regulations, and the second on issues associated with the implementation of the United Nations Globally Harmonized System (GHS) for the Classification and Labelling of Chemicals. The implications of such an endorsement would affect businesses and private entities alike…
The GHS report identifies ways to ensure that the GHS is implemented in a clear and consistent manner. The Government Co-Chair of the Chemical Dialogue noted that implementation of a harmonized labelling scheme for chemicals could cut costs significantly for businesses, which otherwise might have to use different labels to describe the same chemical product depending on the export market.
Essentially, she says, the GHS will harmonize both format of the labels and the information that must be included on them.
