MONTREAL, Feb. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Enviral Markets, a company that manages and operates an expanding network of highly specialized Environment, Health, Safety (EHS), and Sustainability online marketplaces, has been posting information on its websites on the UN's Globally Harmonized System (GHS) of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals.
The GHS addresses classification of chemicals by types of hazard and proposes harmonized hazard communication elements, including Safety Data Sheets (SDSs) and labels. It aims to ensure that information on hazards and toxicity from chemicals is available in order to enhance the protection of human health and the environment during the handling, transport and use of chemicals. GHS also provides a basis for harmonization of rules and regulations on chemicals at national, regional and global levels, an important factor to facilitate trade.
GHS greatly affects companies that market chemicals or chemical-based products and have to create (M)SDSs and labels for the transport of their products, or manage (M)SDSs of raw materials. Companies must be aware of the GHS developments in each and every country where they market their products. Given the complexities and costs associated to GHS and the need to re-author a lot of existing (M)SDSs, companies are turning towards solution providers for commercial (M)SDS software and services.
The following are the resources from Enviral Markets that offer information on GHS:
- MSDS Compliance blog that includes (M)SDS topics applicable to GHS, as well as topics specific to GHS.
- GHS Implementation Status webpage on MSDS Compliance that provides the status of GHS in multiple countries.
- GHS Legislation blog that provides status on GHS implementation for most regions of the world.
- GHS MSDS blog that provides information on the GHS SDS document format and content.
By providing extensive and thorough knowledge on GHS to an increasing number of companies, Enviral Markets also gives these same companies an opportunity to learn more about (M)SDS software and service solutions on MSDS Compliance, thus contributing to bring more buyers and vendors together.
Vendors should not hesitate to contact Enviral Markets to receive more information on subscription packages and learn more about how to benefit from their presence on relevant EHS and Sustainability marketplaces operated by Enviral Markets. Buyers are also welcome to contact Enviral Markets to receive free guidance and assistance on how to evaluate vendor solutions addressing their EHS and Sustainability challenges.
