GHS Labeling


OSHA has updated the requirements for labeling of hazardous chemicals under its Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) to bring the United States into alignment with the UN’s Globally Harmonized System (GHS) of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals. As of June 1, 2015, all labels will be required to have pictograms, a signal word, hazard and precautionary statements, the product identifier, and supplier identification.

In preparation for the adoption of the UN GHS labeling standard, companies will be required to design new label formats that comply with the GHS standard and identify printing technologies and label materials that meet the durability requirements for the new standard.


Lowry’s GHS Labeling Solutions offer a variety of label materials and printing methods to enable Chemical Manufacturers and Distributors to meet the GHS worldwide labeling regulation (as indicated by OSHA’s updated HCS regulations).

For chemicals shipping via an International Waterway, an IMDG (International Maritime Dangerous Goods) compliant label that meets both sections 2 & 3 of the British Standard (BS) 5609 must be used. This requires a certified combination of durable label material, adhesive and inks designed to ensure image permanence when exposed to saltwater, harsh UV exposure, and sand abrasion.
