Understanding GHS

GHS is a chemical hazard classification system and labeling/codifying method which is globally implemented for protecting the health of the population and the environment; ensuring production, use, transportaion and disposal of chemicals safely. Socialization of GHS will be done especially for workers, transporters, paramedics/first aid workers, and the consumers. GHS implementation will be useful in increasing international trade.

In GHS, hazards are classified by chemicals or chemical mixtures. Also, the presentation system of the data/information through labels and data sheets about safety are standardized. It is an integrated system of control/handling of chemicals according to chemical “life-cycles” form production to disposal.

Trade and investment in the chemical field is rapidly growing all over the world. Therefore, the global harmonization of standards of chemical handling is necessary. A definite global system for classification and codefication standards for hazardous chemicals will come in great use in managing differences between indications/codes used in every country, and will help overcome “non-barriers” in international trade.

As recommended by the UN, in July 2003 GHS (Globally Harmonized System for Classification and Labeling of Chemicals) will be implemented by 2008. Furthermore, in WGCI, APEC has agreed that GHS will be implemented by 2006. The perfection of  chemical material control systems will come to great use for the the development of the chemical industry.  Asian countries will need information regarding GHS and technical help in implementation, because GHS classifications are much different compared to other classifications fro EU, OSHA and so on. Implementation GHS will need much effort to fulfill the UN mandate, and will also make the industry think of the best and fastest ways to fulfill the demands of the international world and the UN in particular.

Besides that, the end result of GHS implementation will provide a harmonized standards system which will ease international trade and help hazard identification in any country around the world.
