IATA Guidance Document – Specification of Hazard Labels (6:22 AM, 03/28/2018)

LOGAR will share this news with you:

As it is now well documented that the UN Subcommittee and the ICAO Dangerous Goods Panel have determined that the thickness of the line on hazard labels has no bearing on safety, and the provisions in the ICAO Technical Instructions and IATA DGR will formally remove reference to the thickness of the line on hazard labels with effect 1 January 2019, please find attached a guidance document advising that the dangerous goods acceptance check should not consider the thickness of the line.

Hazardous substances according to GHS, hazardous materials science

 

The UN (United Nations) GHS (Globally Harmonized System of Classification, Labelling and Packaging of Chemicals) forms the interface between the dangerous goods regulations (hazardous materials regulations) and the hazardous substances regulations.

Thus, GHS provides a worldwide uniform platform for the dangerous goods related classification in compliance with the UN Model Regulations.

In Europe, effective December 1st, 2012 it is mandatory to classify chemical substances and products in accordance with EC – Directive 1272/2008 under GHS / CLP. For mixtures and solutions (formerly called preparations), compliance is mandated effective June 1st, 2015.  

These changes have brought substantial changes in regard to the classification under hazardous substances requirements as well as transport – related issues caused by classification and subsequent marking under hazardous substances regulations not conforming with their dangerous goods (hazardous materials) classification.

In particular the creation of EC Safety Data Sheets (EC-SDS) is subject to considerable changes:

Since GHS differs greatly from EC regulatory requirements used before, certain differences and uncertainities in regard to the classification of chemical products and substances have been encountered during the transitional period.

For example, the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations emphasize in multiple locations that the presence of GHS markings on packages either not declared as dangerous goods (hazardous materials); or on packages declared as dangerous goods where the dangerous goods transport document conveys a type of danger differing from the hazards communicated by the GHS Labels must be interpreted as an indicator for undeclared or misdeclared dangerous goods.

Subsequently, manufacturers, shippers and other entities introducing such products into commerce should observe heightened caution regarding the compliance of their GHS classifications, their subsequent creation of EC Safety Data Sheets and the GHS Marks applied to the packagings in accordance with GHS requirements.  

Where necessary and so required, GHS Marks and EC – SDS should be adjusted or redrafted.

LOGAR offers you an one-stop service: No matter if dangerous goods regulations (hazardous materials regulations) or hazardous substances regulations – our solutions in regard to the evaluation of existing documentation, classification of chemical products and substances and creation of EC Safety Data Sheets in all official EC languages as well as our widespread portfolio of dangerous goods related services and training will get you ahead!

We will also create technical data sheets for articles for which a SDS is not required under CLP / REACH but which under national legislative requirements, such as US - OSHA, require such documentation.
