GHS Chemical Labeling

Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals


Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS) is an internationally agreed-upon system that uses consistent criteria designed to standardize and replace the various classifications and labeling standards used worldwide.


GHS compliance includes directions for application of the hazard communication elements on the label.

For example, it specifies for each hazard, and for each class within the hazard, what signal word, pictogram and hazard statement should be used and how these elements should be arranged on the label.

We at M&M Technologies assist, support and deliver the powerful software tools for designing the label as GHS Chemical Labeling Solution.
