What is GHS?
GHS or Globally Harmonized System is a universal approach to defining and classifying hazards, and communicating information on labels and safety data sheets.
What is the purpose of GHS
Inconsistencies between national and international laws create a regulatory and compliance nightmare that compromises safety. GHS standardizes all countries with a new comprehensive system that communicates the hazards to all who are exposed.
GHS Goals :
1. Improve human health and the environment with an international system for hazard communication
2. Create a framework for countries without a system
3. Reduce the need for testing and evaluating chemicals
4. Facilitate international trade with properly identified chemicals
