GHS revision to be adopted

Safe Work Australia members have announced that Revision 7 of the Globally Harmonised System for Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS) will be adopted from 1 July 2020 under the model WHS laws. A transitional period of two years will apply for chemical manufacturers and importers following the adoption, whilst suppliers and users can continue under Revision 3 to supply and use their current stock until it runs out.
