GHS Update — A Conversation with Karin Baron
This week, I welcomed back to the studio Karin F. Baron, Senior Regulatory Consultant at B&C and our consulting affiliate, The Acta Group. Karin is an internationally recognized expert on hazard communication, risk assessment, the regulation of food contact materials, and the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS). Karin’s expertise in hazard communication and GHS was recently recognized as Karin was elected to the Board of Directors of the Society for Chemical Hazard Communication (SCHC), an organization Karin has held leadership positions in for years.
Our conversation focuses on the truly seismic changes underway in South and Central America, in the European Union and United Kingdom, and in Asia with regard to adoption of the GHS and the Safety Data Sheet implications of these actions. These initiatives have a profound impact on the movement of goods and materials internationally, and the unwary can find themselves in a world of trouble by not keeping up. Karin’s special talent in this space is directed at helping her clients avoid bad commercial things from happening.
