CLP/GHS Regulation: Wetrok Compliance
All chemical products must in future bear an internationally standardised symbol
All hazardous chemical products are easily recognised by their hazard pictograms. Internationally standardised pictograms will ensure that everyone understands and recognises these hazard symbols wherever they may come across them around the world. This Global Harmonisation System – or GHS – will come into force on 1 June 2015. The new, globally standardised hazard symbols pointing out the relevant danger are depicted in black on a white background, and are framed in red.
The previous orange symbols of the EU Dangerous Preparations Directive will therefore have to be replaced by the new hazard pictograms. The old symbols will remain valid for all products manufactured before 1 June 2015 – a transitional period will be applicable for these, ending on 31 May 2017.
All Wetrok safety datasheets will be GHS-compliant as of 1 June 2015. The revised datasheets will be made available to customers online, and will be supplied with the initial delivery of the relabelled products.
