The Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals, or GHS for short, is an international system that the United Nations began developing in the 1990s. Even if you’re not familiar with the GHS, you probably are familiar with the GHS pictograms that many organizations use to label chemicals and other substances that could potentially be harmful to those who come in contact.

Hazard Classification

One of the primary goals of GHS is to classify potential hazards, and the GHS classification system currently has nine categories, including ICC Compliance Center, which has more online resources available.
