GHS – maximum safety

Uniform system for classifying chemicals

An important step in raising safety standards was taken in 2009, when the EU Regulation on the classification and labeling of chemicals came into force, thereby ensuring greater transparency in the handling of chemicals. The Globally Harmonized System – or GHS for short – kills two birds with one stone, so to speak. Firstly, it delivers high safety standards for people and the environment and, secondly, it safeguards the free movement of chemical substances within the European single market.

Following the introduction of the system, chemicals will be classified and labeled in line with the same, globally standardized criteria. Accordingly, all the substances in a specific hazard category must be labeled with the same symbol. LANXESS is well on course with implementing the regulation. By December 1, 2010, the company had classified all the chemical substances it handles according to GHS specifications and notified them to the chemical inventory at the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) in Helsinki, Finland.
