Globally harmonized system of classification and labelling

The Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling (GHS) for agvet chemical products is a single internationally agreed system of chemical classification and hazard communication through labelling and safety data sheets.

The work health and safety legislation requires that, from 1 January 2017, all agvet chemical products be labelled in accordance with the GHS. This includes statements relating to the intrinsic hazards of the product, in addition to relevant label particulars required by the APVMA.

For more information, visit our website.
