FORUM SESSION: If Transport and GHS are harmonized – why are my Sections 2 and 14 so different? 

Moderators: Denese Deeds and Chandra Gioiello

As SDS authors, we are often asked why our transport classification and our GHS classifications are not the same or why our section 2 pictograms do not align with the hazard class in Section 14. This can happen for many reasons: different criteria (pH), exceptions, mode and region of transport, and many others. Bring your mysteries of this conflict to this discussion and we will try to explain why.

Moderators: John Howell and Martina Frenette

Many of us have been anticipating the forthcoming changes to HCS 2012 but, with OSHA’s recent public hearing, we still don’t know which of the proposed changes will “stick.” Further, most - but not all - of us will be counting on software authoring companies to implement changes to help us with the transition. With all of that in mind, what issues can we anticipate? Will we have enough time? Look through the proposed changes and let us all know which changes cause you the greatest heartburn.
