Definition of GHS Label (In Under 100 Words)

GHS label is a label with six mandatory components that abide by the Globally Harmonised System Requirements: product identifier/ingredient disclosure, signal word, hazard statements, precautionary statements, supplier information, and pictograms.

These components are known throughout various industries to meet regulatory labelling and tracking challenges. GHS allows companies globally to have one common, coherent framework for classifying and communicating information related to chemicals to promote safety and accurate tracking.
