The Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS) covers all hazardous chemicals and has been developed through co-operation between the International Labour Office (ILO), the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and the United Nations on the basis of a mandate given in Agenda 21 by the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) in Rio de Janeiro. While national or regional Governments are the primary audiences for this document, it also contains sufficient context and guidance for those in industry who will ultimately be implementing the requirements which have been adopted. This edition includes revisions relating to classification and labelling, and new provisions for aspiration hazards and new guidance on the use of precautionary statements and pictograms and on the preparation of safety data sheets.
