Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals
Project on Strengthening National and Regional Capacities to Implement the GHS in ASEAN -- Phase II
|In the context of the UNITAR/ILO Global GHS Capacity Building Programme, and funded by the European Union, a 3-year project to strengthen national and regional capacities to implement the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS) in countries of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) was initiated in January 2010.|
The project, which builds on the successful first phase conducted from 2005-2007 (which trained more than 1,500 government, industry, and non-governmental beneficiaries), will be expanded to include other key regional partners during the period 2010-2012. Partner countries include: Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand, and PR China. Regional activities will involve all ten ASEAN member countries, and well as China, Japan, and Korea (“ASEAN +3”), and other regional partners and organizations.
These webpages provide information about the national, regional, and supporting activities undertaken in the context of the project and will be updated periodically with relevant information, documents, and outcomes.
