Public-private partnership for consolidation of GHS classification launched by Japanese Government

Date: 26 April 2023

Japan has launched a new initiative for the collection and joint review of data for the consolidated GHS classification of 157 target substances in the fiscal year 2023. The importance of government GHS classification results is increasing, due to the fact that the selected substances are subject to labeling and notification requirements under the Industrial Safety and Health Act (workers’ safety and protection).
