INSIDE Photo: Fotolia Chemical substances will soon be labeled using a new uniform worldwide system of hazard pictograms and warnings. THE NEW CHEMICAL LABELING (GHS) Many different systems are used around the world to label chemical substances and mixtures. The Globally Harmonized System (GHS) of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals issued by the United Nations forms the basis for worldwide standardization of the existing national systems. The new labels will soon appear on MOTOREX products. The main aim of the harmonized labeling system is to ensure better protection of human health and the environment worldwide. Today a substance may be classified as harmful to health in one country, as an environmental hazard as well in another and not hazard ous at all in a third. The harmonization will establish largely uniform rules and thus eliminate misunderstandings. WHAT WILL CHANGE? With the legally mandated implementation of the new GHS labeling, the following elements will change on labels and safety data sheets: • Hazard pictograms • The signal words “Warning” and “Danger” • Hazard statements (H statements) • Precautionary statements (P statements) The new classifications could mean that products not previously marked with a hazard symbol may now bear one or more hazard pictograms, even though the composition of the product itself is unchanged! For the user, this means nothing will change as far as use of the product is concerned. The product can be used as accustomed with the usual precautions. HAZARD PICTOGRAMS The new hazard pictograms replace the former hazard symbols. Instead of being shown against an orange background, the illustrations are now adap- 14

Some pictograms have simply been visually updated, while the “gas cylinder,” “exclamation mark” and “danger to health” pictograms are completely new. TWO NEW SIGNAL WORDS The new signal words indicate the degree of risk. “Warning” is used for less serious hazards such as skin irritation, whereas “Danger” alerts people to more serious hazards such as skin corrosion. same time. During the transition period, safety data sheets will contain both the new labeling and the old familiar version. Therefore you may receive products with the newly designed safety labeling as early as this summer. By June 1, 2017 all warehouse stocks bearing the old labels must be either used up or relabeled. Being aware of hazards beforehand makes them easier to avoid. Your MOTOREX partner will be glad to answer any questions you may have about GHS and the new labeling system. • NEW H AND P STATEMENTS The new chemical labeling system replaces the former R (risk) and S (safety) statements on labels and safety data sheets with coded H (hazard) and P (precaution) statements. These are brief statements describing hazards and safety precautions associated with chemicals and mixtures. SERIOUSLY PREPARED MOTOREX is working diligently to prepare for these upcoming changes and has already invested in IT systems, labeling and logistics. All products must be successively labeled in accordance with GHS by June 1, 2015; safety data sheets must be updated at the OLD NEW Same contents, new markings: old (left) and new (right) GHS labeling.
