Chemical Labels for the Safe Marking of Hazardous Substances in Accordance with the GHS Regulation

Quality, reliability and service are important requirements for producing and printing labels for the chemical industry.  Producers of chemical substances can choose from a wide range of chemical labels that meet the legal requirements according to the GHS and CLP regulations.

In addition to these features, the company myLabels GmbH offers comprehensive customer service including maintenance and repair of label printers and labeling systems.


Requirements for Chemical Labels

All chemicals produced by a company operating in the chemical industry must be specially packaged and labeled. To ensure that the labeling is visible to consumers and commercial customers, the labels must adhere permanently to various substrates and yet be removable after use. Chemical substances are transported and sold in packaging made of glass, metal, paper, rubber, wood, or plastic. myLabels offers suitable labels for the chemical industry that adhere securely to different substrates and remain legible for a long time.


Labeling Obligation According to GHS Regulation

Basically, hazardous substance labels, as the name suggests, fulfill the task of indicating toxic substances and substances that are hazardous to health. These substances are labeled uniformly worldwide in accordance with CLP/GHS. This is done based on the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS) introduced by the United Nations (UN).

Since its introduction, chemicals, acids and other chemical products must be labeled according to the CLP (Classification, Labeling and Packaging of Substances and Mixtures) regulation. The requirements also address the durability and legibility of foil labels and other chemical labels to ensure proper classification.

Labels According to GHS Regulation

All labels used for the marking of transport barrels or containers containing dangerous goods which are transported by sea must comply with the special provisions and requirements of BS5609 (BS = British Standard).

The GHS regulation states that it must be guaranteed that the printed and affixed label materials can remain in seawater for three months without the labels peeling off from the affixed substrate or the label print becoming illegible.
