GHS Awareness for Canada and United States


Home / News / Press Releases /

NIAGARA FALLS, New York—November 23, 2005—For many of us, planning ahead two or three years may be a seemingly arduous task amalgamated with varying factors. However, for businesses, strategic planning and long-range forecasting is common practice for success. Without it, status quo quickly descends into ambiguity.

The United Nations (UN) has spent over a decade in developing the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS), referred to as the "purple book." Underpinning this system is the UN's need to harmonize the multitude of systems within individual countries and between countries. Thus, countries are encouraged to implement the GHS, with a worldwide operational system by 2008, U.S. D.O.T. published. Ultimately, this will "promote a more consistent communication of information and thereby facilitate the safe use of chemicals and lessen the barriers to trade," as noted on Health Canada's website.
