GHS Rev. 10 Luglio 2023 / Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals / 10a Ed. 2023

Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS): Tenth Revised Edition The GHS addresses the classification of chemicals by types of hazards and wants to harmonize those types of hazards, including labels and safety data sheets. It aims to ensure that information on physical hazards and toxicity from chemicals is the best possible for the protection of human health and the environment during handling, transport and use.

The GHS also provides a basis for the harmonization of national, regional and global chemicals standards and regulations. In its 11th session (9 December 2022), the “Committee of Experts on the Transport of Dangerous Goods and the Globally Harmonized System and Labeling of Chemicals” introduced a number of amendments to the revised 9th edition of the GHS addressing, among other topics:

– the classification procedure for desensitized explosives (chapter 2.17);
– the use of non-animal test methods for the classification of health hazards, in particular: skin corrosion/irritation (chapter 3.2), serious eye damage/irritation (chapter 3.3) and respiratory or skin sensitization (chapter 3.4);
– further streamlining of the precautionary statements to improve user comprehensibility, taking into account usability for labeling professionals; And
– the revision of annexes 9 and 10 to ensure the alignment of the classification strategy, guidelines and tools on metals and metal compounds with the provisions for long-term toxicity of aquatic classification in chapter 4.1.
