Why Does GHS and BS5609 Matter?

In June of 2015, the Global Harmonized System (GHS) of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals was introduced. This system was created to standardize and harmonize the classification of labeling chemicals all around the world. With the change in regulations, the labels used to identify the chemicals became more important than ever.


GHS Labels, also known as Drum Labels, now follow the same universal layout including the nine pictogram images used for easy identification and proper handling. Additional certification came for chemical labels that are being shipped overseas. The British Standard certification determines the label's overall durability when exposed to salt water or marine conditions. To be BS5609 approved, the label must pass certain criteria and be able to withstand weathering, abrasion, colorfastness, and adhesion.
