Product labeling and Safety - UN ‘Sub-committee of Experts on the Globally Harmonized System (GHS) of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals.

The IGTC works with the UN ‘Sub-committee of Experts on the Globally Harmonized System (GHS) of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals’ on a proposal for the reclassification of grain as a hazardous material.  If grain is redefined this will have immediate impacts on grain storages worldwide from farm to end user as well as substantial changes to occupational health and safety legislation/practices.

IGTC is working through its membership to ensure that grain does not fall under the definition as a “hazardous material”.
