WEBINAR—NAFTA Members’ GHS Programs: A Comparative Analysis, December 10, 2014, 1:00 p.m. (EST)

While the United Nations’ Globally Harmonized System for Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS) model provides a backbone for hazard communications, it is only a tool for other nations to utilize, adopt, and amend as appropriate for their country-specific needs. There are substantial differences between approaches taken by Canada, Mexico, and the United States in GHS implementation, and professionals responsible for compliant Safety Data Sheets and labels in these countries should pay close attention to the variations. The webinar, hosted by Bloomberg BNA and presented by Karin F. Baron MSPH, Regulatory Specialist with Acta, will provide background information on the major building blocks of UN GHS, and examine the specific similarities and differences between GHS in Canada, Mexico, and the United States. The cost is $299 and CPLE credit is available. For more information and to register: NAFTA Members’ GHS Programs: A Comparative Analysis.
