GHS Implementation Status
In Brazil the GHS has been implemented as of 27 February 2011.
For Pure substances: classification must be done using NBR 14725-2:2009, packing and labelling using NBR 14725-3:2009 and SDS must be authored using NBR 14725-4:2009
For Mixtures: The use of standard NRB 14725:2009 was optional until 31 May 2015. As of June 1st 2015, all mixtures had to be classified, packed and labelled in accordance with NRB 14725-2 and 3 respectively and SDS authored using NBR 14725-4:2009.
Multi – Jurisdiction SDS Options
Australian SDS’s can be combined with New Zealand regulations so that one document will be compliant in both jurisdictions. Having a single document for use in other jurisdictions should be avoided due to significant differences between systems.
