GHS stands for the Globally Harmonized System of the Classification and Labelling of Chemical. It is a worldwide guideline system and provide the basis for classifying and communicating the hazardous properties of chemicals. The objective of GHS is to have the harmonised classification system to classifying hazards, and the same format and content for labels and safety data sheets (SDS). Both labels and SDS will be adopted and used around the world.
GHS has been introduced to many countries/regions, for example Malaysia, Singapore, Europe, USA, etc via their own legislation or standards. Every two years, GHS will revise and update the information, the latest version is the 8th revised edition released in 2019. Therefore, there may be differences in adoption of GHS revised edition by different countries. For example, Malaysia and United States adopt GHS 3rd revised edition, while Singapore and China adopt GHS 4th revised edition. Overall, the information such as label elements (pictograms, signal words, hazard and precautionary statements) are harmonized.
