    Taiwan's Bureau of Standards, Metrology and Inspection (BSMI) of the Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA) has finalized changes to 11 of the 28 CNS 15030 serial standards. The new CNS 15030 standards have been revised to align with UN GHS Rev.4 as well as China, Japan, Singapore, etc. The new standards were issued on 26 Jan 2015 and took effect immediately.

    The previous standards were issued on 29 Dec 2008 and were made based on GHS Rev.2. According to Mr. Liu, senior specialist for standard revision from the BSMI, the CNS 15030-27 for environment hazard is a priority update target and will be amended to meet the EPA’s requirements of hazard evaluation after chemical registration under the revised TCSCA.

    The CNS 15030 serial standards (CN/EN documents) can be purchased on the CNS website. The official English translation of the revised 11 standards are being prepared, which will take more than one month. (If you need a copy, you may leave a message in the comment form - end of this article. We will keep you updated.)
