Globally Harmonized System

Globally Harmonized System (GHS) is a United Nations sponsored model system for classification and labeling created by a consortium of experts across the globe.

This system standardizes the classification of substances and mixtures, hazard communications, modified MSDS/SDS and transport classifications. These guidelines improve the safety of workers and consumers, enable easier adoption in emerging economies and will become a global standard by 2020.

SI Group will support its customers by a timely implementation of GHS hazard classification of its products sold into GHS regions. As a part of this implementation, safety data sheets (SDS) documents and labels must conform to the GHS system implemented and be available in the language of the country of destination.

Please contact the SI Group GHS team for implementation updates and details.
