Australia has completed the transition to GHS 7

GHS 7 is now the only system to classify newly manufactured and imported hazardous chemicals and prepare their labels and safety data sheets (SDS) across Australia.

Thank you to all manufacturers and importers of hazardous chemicals for adopting GHS 7 over the transition period. This change will ensure that labels and SDS use up-to-date hazard classification and communication, and align Australia with our key international trading partners.

Safe Work Australia has updated the Model Code of Practice: Managing risks of hazardous chemicals in the workplace, Model Code of Practice: Labelling of workplace hazardous chemicals, Model Code of Practice: Preparation of a safety data sheets for hazardous chemicals and the Classifying hazardous chemicals – National guide, as well as other fact sheets on hazardous chemicals to reflect Australia’s adoption of GHS 7.
