GHS for Upstream Suppliers and Manufacturers
From Solutions for GHS
Navigating the Complexities of the Globally 'Harmonized' System: The UN Globally Harmonized System (GHS) of classification and labelling of chemicals continues to have a profound effect on safety and compliance initiatives around the globe. GHS adoption has proven to be anything but harmonised, and, as a result, many companies still struggle to comply with different countries’ requirements. Verisk 3E has been helping companies tackle the challenges associated with GHS since the system's very beginnings in the late 1990s and early 2000s. Our products and services are GHS-ready, as each country adopts and implements its own version.
Upstream suppliers and manufacturers need to re-evaluate how their substances and mixtures are classified for each regulatory entity, country and/or region and frequently need to re-issue SDSs and labels. Verisk 3E offers a powerful combination of content, software and services to address the challenges associated with creating GHS compliant SDSs.
Downstream users need to ensure they are able to receive updated SDSs and track which documents have changed as well as what data on the document is different from the earlier version as well as train their employees on the changes. Whether the impact on downstream users receiving updated GHS-compliant SDSs is a tidal wave or a slow trickle, Verisk 3E can help your organization prepare for the requirements.
