In July, the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) published an updated edition of GHS Guidelines. The compendium is updated every two years. It is an instrument designed to help the international community of nations advance harmonization of the classification and labeling of chemicals.
It’s important to know that the provisions of the guidelines are not necessarily legally valid. They go into effect only when individual countries implement them. In the European Union, for example, the CLP Regulation has the force of law.
You can order the new GHS Guidelines from the UNECE Web site.
