Guidance on a consumer product risk assessment for GHS labelling
This provides guidance on the risk assessment of the chronic health hazards of consumer products within the scope of the "Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS)" and its Annex 5 "Consumer Product Labelling Based on the Likelihood of Injury" (GHS Official text, Rev. 2 (2007)) as well as the "Outlook on Risk Assessment for Consumer Products Based on Exposure for GHS Labelling" (GHS Inter-Ministerial Committee Document, January 11, 2007).
The Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, a member of the GHS Inter-Ministerial Committee, has requested the Chemical Management Center, National Institute of Technology and Evaluation (NITE) to establish more specific guidance which consumer product suppliers should be referred to.
This guidance was created in various stages: the NITE Chemical Management Center established an investigative commission in collaboration with related industrial associations, held a variety of discussions, and then had reviews by experts who had been recommended by the GHS Inter-Ministerial Committee.
The guidance includes the following documents.
The errors were found in the Main Document Reference materials No.2.
