D DAY for Exporters to Europe + many other Countries around the world was 1 June 2015, when all SDS & labels must comply – are you prepared? The GHS is coming fast both locally and globally, as a new regulatory means of communicating hazards to protect people in Industry and the Consumer. The GHS falls under a number of regulations - the Dept. of Environmental Affairs, Waste Classification Regulations, Gazetted in August 2013 for immediate implementation, requires GHS classification of waste, with GHS compliant Safety Data Sheets - so time to get started!
