New Zealand to Adopt GHS Rev.7 Classification System on April 30, 2021

GHS Rev.7 will be adopted as New Zealand’s official hazard classification system on April 30th, 2021. The current HSNO hazard classification system will be repealed thereupon. The EPA notices on hazard communication and some of the group standards have been updated to incorporate GHS Rev. 7. An up to 4-year transitional period will be provided for hazardous substances approved before April 30th, 2021.

On November 5th, 2020, New Zealand's Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) issued news titled Chemical management changes coming in 2021 [1], which announces that the government has approved the application of the GHS Rev.7 classification system for hazardous substances. The new system will replace the current HSNO classification system and enter into effect on April 30th, 2021.
