Health Canada’s Update to Rev 7/8 of GHS — A Conversation with Karin F. Baron
This week, I welcomed back to the studio Karin F. Baron, Director of Hazard Communication and International Registration Strategy at B&C and our consulting affiliate, The Acta Group. During this 100th All Things Chemical podcast, Karin and I discuss the very important recently released amendments to the Canadian Hazardous Products Regulations (HPR). The amendments are intended to align the HPR with the seventh revised edition (Rev 7) of the United Nations (UN) Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS). No one on planet Earth knows the global state of play of GHS regulation better than Karin. We focus here on what listeners need to know regarding the new HPR provisions, when they must be implemented, and how they will impact the classification and labeling of hazardous products in Canada and beyond.
