An online consultation for the proposal to adopt an updated edition of the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS) under the model WHS laws was conducted in July 2019.

Twenty-four submissions were received from a range of stakeholders, including users of hazardous chemicals, manufacturers, suppliers, peak industry associations and government agencies.

Safe Work Australia would like to thank those who provided feedback. The feedback received will help ensure any changes to Australia’s classification and hazard communication requirements for workplace hazardous chemicals are implemented in the most effective way.

For further information, the consultation summary is now available on the Safe Work Australia website.

To stay informed about the proposal to adopt GHS 7, subscribe to the hazardous chemicals mailing list.

This site is undergoing constant refinement. If you have noticed something that needs attention or have ideas for the site please let us know.
