9780128009789: Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals

Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals is designed to help chemical industry professionals understand and implement GHS and learn how to independently classify substances with confidence. This book is a practice manual, ideal for individual or group training, based on a successful Spanish-language publication that is already in use in Europe to satisfy REACH requirements. The book is divided into three parts: physical-chemical hazards, human health hazards, and eco-toxicological hazards. The core content focuses on brief descriptions of each hazard which impacts classification and labeling, highlighting the differences between the old and new system, and supplemented with numerous examples and practice exercises and solutions. The new classification system is quite different, not just in terms of the relevant cut-off levels for classifying but also in the names assigned to hazards, warning language, pictograms, and design specifications for labels. This practical manual is the only resource that contains proven strategies for independent classification of hazards and teaching and implementing the new guidelines. * Briefly and clearly explains how to classify particular hazards under the new coding system* Reviews new labeling pictograms, warnings, and differences in cut-off values* Includes numerous examples, case studies, and practice problems to reinforce key concepts

During this ten year period, she performed scientific research in the field of toxicology and collaborated with Catalan Food Safety Agency. In 2007, she left those positions to fund REACH Monitor, a consultancy on regulatory toxicology. Silvia Aguiar (Asturias, Spain - 1977) received her Bachelor of Science in Biology in 1999 with an award for academic achievement, and her Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry in 2003. She completed a research fellowship (1999-2002) on the mechanisms of genotoxicity of antitumoral drugs. Silvia has been a Regulatory Affairs Manager for more than 10 years, working for different consultancy companies in Europe as a toxicologist and ecotoxicologist, and assisting the chemical industry in understanding their roles, obligations, and responsibilities under the European legislation. She has leveraged her experience into that of a speaker at conferences, business events, and training courses. Based on her expertise and experience, her latest project is the publication of a compilation of practical cases to illustrate the application of the Globally Harmonised System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS).
