    The 3rd revision of Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS) was first introduced in Australia on Jan 1st 2012 under the Work Health and Safety Law. However, the industry was given a 5 years’ grace period to allow them to reclassify chemicals and implement necessary changes to labels and SDS. On Jan 1st 2017, the transition period officially ended and GHS requirements became mandatory in Australia.
