Since its first publication in 2003, over 50 distinct countries have adopted the Globally Harmonized System (GHS). Most recently in the United States, OSHA has adopted GHS making the first significant change to its Hazard Communication Standard in nearly 30 years.  As the GHS wave continues and more countries adopt it, one thing has become clear: each implementation has its own unique flavor.  Companies are therefore challenged with understanding the nuances and implications.  What is truly harmonized? What is different?  What are the implications for my Safety Data Sheets and Labels? The following series of Questions and Answers compiled by IHS experts aims to provide some pragmatic guidance on some of the most important aspects of GHS variations and common issues around the globe.
