GHS aims to:
- Enhance protection of humans and the environment
- Facilitate international trade in chemicals
- Reduce the need for testing and evaluation, and
- Assist countries and international organizations to ensure the sound management of chemicals.
This publication, also referred to as the UN "Purple Book", aims at ensuring that information on physical hazards and acute toxicity from chemicals is made available, in order to enhance the protection of human health and the environment during the handling, transport, and use, of these chemicals. The GHS also provides a basis for harmonization of rules and regulations on chemicals at national, regional and a world-wide level, an important factor for trade facilitation. This publication is extremely useful for national and regional governments as well as for those in industries that will ultimately implement the requirements that have been adopted.
