China GHS - Introduction, Updates and Technical Know-How on Classification, SDS, Labeling and Packaging

GHS, which stands for “Globally Harmonized System”, is a hazardous chemicals management system that addresses issues such as classification, Safety Data Sheet, Labeling and Packaging of hazardous chemicals. It was first proposed in the UN Sustainable Conference (WSSD) in Johannesburg, 2002, promising easier communication of hazards posed by chemicals and ultimately, protection of human health, environment and trade facilitation. The UN GHS is not a formal treaty, but a non-legally binding international agreement instead. Therefore, different countries or trading blocks must create local/national legislation to implement GHS. China GHS draws its origin from the UN GHS. However, there exist differences between them. The full-scale implementation of China GHS is expected in the early 2012.
