What is GHS?

The Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals or GHS is an internationally agreed-upon system, created by the United Nations.

GHS requires manufacturers, importers, downstream users and distributors of chemical substances and mixtures to adopt the standard by 1st June 2015.

GHS is set to unify communication of hazardous products and replace existing country specific regulations.

The New GHS Compliant Labels

  1. Product Identifier
  2. Signal Word
  3. Hazard Statements
  4. Precautionary Statements
  5. Supplier Identification
  6. Pictograms


This change will not only promote a safer work environment but also make companies Globalise their Labelling Strategy and make companies Harmonized in terms of their legal compliance.

This has also presented challenges for larger companies that manufacture and distribute to various regional locations throughout the Globe. The logisitcs information together with legal and compliance information has resulted in space problems on the label itself. Weber has worked with several companies to overcome this challenge
