  14. 14.

  17. 18. Consumer Products <ul><ul><li>U.S. CPSC: Interagency Working Group on Harmonization </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Canada CCCR: Consumer Chemical Sector Working Group </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Progress quite slow. GHS adoption not expected in near future. </li></ul></ul>Nexreg Compliance Inc. http://www.nexreg.com [email_address] (866)361-3032
  18. 19. Harmonization <ul><ul><li>Likely no Canada & U.S. official inventories. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Key: Will Can/US allow EU (453/2010) layout? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>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.) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Remember to also include other necessary state/country level regs (Prop 65, etc.) </li></ul></ul>Nexreg Compliance Inc. http://www.nexreg.com [email_address] (866)361-3032
  19. 20. Timeline Proposals <ul><ul><li>U.S.: Full compliance 3 years after publication. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Canada proposing 2 years. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>No staggered phase in date for pure-substances vs. mixtures. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>BIG PROBLEM </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Lots of industry feedback – this may change. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>How to classify mixtures without substance level classifications? </li></ul></ul></ul>Nexreg Compliance Inc. http://www.nexreg.com [email_address] (866)361-3032
  20. 21. To Do - Now <ul><ul><li>Hopefully timelines will change, but best to assume they will not. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Become familiar with: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>PURPLE BOOK </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>US Federal Register 74:50279-50549 </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Canada: CCOHS materials </li></ul></ul></ul>Nexreg Compliance Inc. http://www.nexreg.com [email_address] (866)361-3032
  21. 22. To Do - Now <ul><ul><li>Since no staggered dates for substance/ mixtures, need to obtain substance level classifications ASAP for components in products. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>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. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Use EU info as basis for classifying mixtures. </li></ul></ul></ul>Nexreg Compliance Inc. http://www.nexreg.com [email_address] (866)361-3032
