GHS compliant shoulder labels are now available from Ratermann manufacturing. The Global Harmonized System (GHS) initiative was developed to globally harmonize the classification and labelling of chemicals and hazardous materials in a world where these products are traded internationally.
GHS will provide a standardised approach to label contents and safety data sheets and is based on major existing systems around the world, including : OSHA’s Hazard Communication Standard in the US and Chemical Classification and labelling systems of other regulatory agencies (EPA/DOT/CPSC).
The deadline for chemical manufacturers, importers, or distributors is 1 June, 2015 to comply with all of the requirements of the GHS rule, including classify chemical safety hazards and prepare new labels and Safety Data Sheets. Distributors will have until 1st December, 2015 to comply with shipping requirements for the GHS compliant label.
