Washington — OSHA has scheduled a public meeting in advance of the 46th session of the United Nations Sub-Committee of Experts on the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals.

During the virtual meeting – set for 1 p.m. Eastern on June 11 – OSHA, along with the U.S. Interagency GHS Coordinating Group, will gather comments and other information to help formulate the U.S. government’s positions for the UN meeting. That subcommittee will convene July 3-5 in Geneva, Switzerland.

OSHA recently finalized a rule that aligns its standard on hazard communication (1910.1200) with the seventh revision of the GHS. The standard was previously linked to the third revision.
