Converting MSDS to GHS Format

Standard GHS warning symbols

Worldwide, the chemicals industry always has had a consistency issue between countries with chemical classification. There have been many different standards to help ease complying with the complex differences between hazard classification regulations in different countries. In response, the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS) was adopted by the United Nations as an international system of standards for labeling and classifying hazardous chemical substances.

Already used in Europe, Canada and the United States, GHS is quickly becoming the worldwide standard for chemical labeling and safety. Translations Services USA can translate your MSDS to any language and ensure the new version complies with these standards.
