Manufacturers and importers of workplace hazardous chemicals – Adoption of GHS 7 information sheet
Australia uses the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS) to classify and label chemicals.
Australia has now adopted the 7th Revised edition of the GHS (GHS 7). Only GHS 7 can be used to classify, label and prepare safety data sheets (SDS) for newly manufactured or imported hazardous chemicals.
This information sheet tells you what to do now that only GHS 7 can be used if you:
- manufacture hazardous chemicals
- import hazardous chemicals
- repackage or re-label hazardous chemicals with your product name.
For more information on Australia’s adoption of GHS 7, see our adoption to GHS 7 webpage.
