Implementation of the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (Revision 7)
This consultation document is seeking input on a range of proposals related to moving New Zealand from its current classification system for hazardous substances to Revision 7 of the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS). This change in classification system would be achieved by the Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) issuing a new Classification Notice, as provided for within the Hazardous Substances and New Organisms (HSNO) Act 1996. Adopting the GHS 7 system will ensure an internationally aligned classification system for hazardous substances that facilitates trade, increases efficiency in chemicals management, and the effectiveness of the HSNO Act.
