Model Code of Practice - Labelling of Workplace Hazardous Chemicals

All information relating to the recent amendments to the model WHS laws exempting certain veterinary chemicals from labelling requirements are in the process of being updated on our website. These updates will be complete before 1 January 2017, when the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS) takes full effect.

This model Code of Practice has been developed to provide practical guidance to persons conducting a business or undertaking involved in the manufacture, import, supply or use of hazardous chemicals on how to correctly label hazardous chemicals used in the workplace.

To have legal effect in a jurisdiction, the model Code of Practice must be approved as a code of practice in that jurisdiction. To determine if this model Code of Practice has been approved as a code of practice in a particular jurisdiction, check with the relevant regulator.
