    • Mike P. Moffatt
    • Nexreg Compliance
    Nexreg Compliance Inc. http://www.nexreg.com [email_address] (866)361-3032
  • Coverage
    • Basics of GHS
    • Lessons from Other Jurisdictions
    • U.S. and Canada
      • Leaving Out
      • Adding
    • Timelines and To Dos.
    Nexreg Compliance Inc. http://www.nexreg.com [email_address] (866)361-3032
  • What is GHS?
    • U.N. Initiative: Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS)
    • Harmonized
      • Classification Criteria
      • Safety Data Sheets (SDSs)
      • Label Elements
    Nexreg Compliance Inc. http://www.nexreg.com [email_address] (866)361-3032
  • Building Block Approach
    • Purple Book – Revision 3
    • 3 Haz Groups: Health, Physical, Enviro.
    • 28 classes (10 H, 16 P, 2 E)
    • Categories (under class)
    • e.g. Ph: Flammable Aerosol, Category 2
    Nexreg Compliance Inc. http://www.nexreg.com [email_address] (866)361-3032
  • Building Block Approach
    • 2 Signal Words (Danger, Warning)
    • 72 ind., 17 comb. Hazard Statements
    • 105 ind., 33 comb. Precautionary Statem.
    • Standardized 16 section SDS
    • 9 Pictograms (non-transport)
    Nexreg Compliance Inc. http://www.nexreg.com [email_address] (866)361-3032
  • Worldwide Progress
    • Adopted in:
    • Japan
    • Taiwan
    • New Zealand
    • Korea
    • EU Compliance Dates:
      • Substances: Dec 1, 2010
      • Mixtures: June 1, 2015
    Nexreg Compliance Inc. http://www.nexreg.com [email_address] (866)361-3032
  • Experience So Far
    • Far more harmonization of classification (caffeine problem)
    • Country level issue (omissions/additions)
    • Use of ‘National Inventories’
    • EU SDS Format 453/2010
    • GHS Neither Completely Global Nor Harmonized: http://bit.ly/ghsvideo
    Nexreg Compliance Inc. http://www.nexreg.com [email_address] (866)361-3032
  • North American Situation
    • Consider both U.S. and Canada.
    • U.S. further ahead. Canada taking more of a ‘wait and see’ approach.
    Nexreg Compliance Inc. http://www.nexreg.com [email_address] (866)361-3032
  • Canada – HazCom Standards
    • 5 different HazCom standards
      • WHMIS (Industrial)
      • Consumer Products
      • Pest Control Products
      • Explosives
      • TDG (Transport)
    Nexreg Compliance Inc. http://www.nexreg.com [email_address] (866)361-3032
  • North American Progress
    • Industrial Labeling / Safety Data Sheets
    • U.S. Proposed Rule on Sep. 30, 2009
      • US Federal Register 74:50279-50549
      • Hearings in March 2010: DC, Pittsburgh
    • Canada: CCOHS White Papers & Webinars
    Nexreg Compliance Inc. http://www.nexreg.com [email_address] (866)361-3032
  • Likely GHS Omissions
    • U.S.: Omitted Hazard Categories
      • Acute Toxicity Cat. 5 (Oral, Dermal & Inhl.)
      • Skin Corrosion/Irritation Cat. 3
      • Aspiration Haz. Cat. 2
      • Note: These were also omitted from EU CLP .
    • Canada: Likely to follow suit.
    Nexreg Compliance Inc. http://www.nexreg.com [email_address] (866)361-3032
  • Likely GHS Omissions
    • Entire Enviro. Hazard Group omitted from OSHA (U.S.) and WHMIS (Can) adoption.
      • Jurisdictional Issue
    • Could appear in other N.A. adoptions (e.g. pest control products)
    Nexreg Compliance Inc. http://www.nexreg.com [email_address] (866)361-3032
  • Likely GHS Additions
    • Both U.S. and Canada likely to add hazard groups.
    • U.S. – Possible Hazard Categories
      • Combustible Dust
      • Simple Asphyxiants (would not require a pictogram)
    Nexreg Compliance Inc. http://www.nexreg.com [email_address] (866)361-3032
  • Likely GHS Additions
    • Both U.S. and Canada likely to add hazard groups.
    • Canada
      • Biohazardous Infectious Material (Class D3 – would use GHS modified version of existing pictogram)
      • Water reactive substances (Part of Class F. May be in GHS Rev. 4)
    Nexreg Compliance Inc. http://www.nexreg.com [email_address] (866)361-3032
  • Likely GHS Additions
    • U.S.
      • No other major additions likely, though Safety Data Sheets will continue to contain other regulatory info (Prop 65, etc.)
      • Adoption of both 16 Section SDS and GHS standard label likely.
      • May need to include CAS Nos. on label (not a GHS requirement)
    Nexreg Compliance Inc. http://www.nexreg.com [email_address] (866)361-3032
  •  
  • Likely GHS Additions
    • Canada: Many existing features of WHMIS likely to be retained, including:
      • Name ‘WHMIS’
      • WHMIS Concentration Ranges
      • Three year expiry date for SDSs.
      • Reference to SDS on Label
      • Hatched WHMIS Border on Label! (Possibly)
    Nexreg Compliance Inc. http://www.nexreg.com [email_address] (866)361-3032
  • Consumer Products
      • U.S. CPSC: Interagency Working Group on Harmonization
      • Canada CCCR: Consumer Chemical Sector Working Group
      • Progress quite slow. GHS adoption not expected in near future.
    Nexreg Compliance Inc. http://www.nexreg.com [email_address] (866)361-3032
  • Harmonization
      • Likely no Canada & U.S. official inventories.
      • Key: Will Can/US allow EU (453/2010) layout?
      • If both Canada and U.S. do not drop additional categories, a single SDS to cover Can/US/EU should be possible, so long as the additional classes covered (EU – Enviro, Can – D3 etc.)
      • Remember to also include other necessary state/country level regs (Prop 65, etc.)
    Nexreg Compliance Inc. http://www.nexreg.com [email_address] (866)361-3032
  • Timeline Proposals
      • U.S.: Full compliance 3 years after publication.
      • Canada proposing 2 years.
      • No staggered phase in date for pure-substances vs. mixtures.
        • BIG PROBLEM
        • Lots of industry feedback – this may change.
        • How to classify mixtures without substance level classifications?
    Nexreg Compliance Inc. http://www.nexreg.com [email_address] (866)361-3032
  • To Do - Now
      • Hopefully timelines will change, but best to assume they will not.
      • Become familiar with:
        • PURPLE BOOK
        • US Federal Register 74:50279-50549
        • Canada: CCOHS materials
    Nexreg Compliance Inc. http://www.nexreg.com [email_address] (866)361-3032
  • To Do - Now
      • Since no staggered dates for substance/ mixtures, need to obtain substance level classifications ASAP for components in products.
        • EU companies have until Dec 1, 2010 to have compliant CLP SDSs for substances. As well, must propose “provisional classifications” for 140,000 REACH pre-registered components.
        • Use EU info as basis for classifying mixtures.
