Chile's environment and health ministries have approved a proposed draft regulation for the classification, labelling, and notification of chemical substances and mixtures.
If passed, the regulation would implement the UN Globally Harmonized System (GHS) of classifying and labelling chemicals and would include a transition period for the adjustment of labelling and safety data sheets.
The 26 October announcement said the proposed draft would also provide for the notification and evaluation of chemicals in a similar fashion to that under the EU’s classification, labelling and packaging (CLP) Regulation. Manufacturers of hazardous industrial chemicals will have to notify the environmental authorities with information on the identification, uses and amounts of the chemicals in question.
