EDISON, NJ - By June 2015, U.S. chemical manufacturers and importers will be required to comply with new U.S. OSHA Hazard Communication regulations with adoption of the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS). GHS provides a single international system that can be used to identify and communicate hazards while transporting and supplying chemicals across the world. In order to seamlessly transition their customers to the new formats for safety data sheets and product labeling, Croda Inc. will begin labeling its samples and drums in this new format before the year’s end.
Croda stated that no products in its portfolio will change as a result of GHS; rather a new, universal classification system is being implemented. As this system is new, Croda is offering customers information on the new regulations and assistance with any transitions. Croda has also created several tools to help customers, which can be accessed by visiting Croda’s GHS-dedicated webpage at www.crodausa.com/usghs.
