Globally Harmonized System (GHS) Classification and Labelling Expert Rules for SAP EH&S

The GHS rule set is designed to handle the various versions of the GHS. This includes both the United Nation's Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (Purple Book) as well country-specific implementations.

The rules are configurable to allow users to include, exclude and prioritize specific classification criteria. Used in conjunction with the LOLI-SAP EHS&T datasets, the rules allow for classifications considering:

  • Physical, chemical, toxicological and ecotoxicological endpoints
  • Published GHS classifications
  • Other existing classification and labeling information (e.g., OSHA classifications)

Country specific adoptions of GHS are taken into account through the inclusion of published GHS classifications, country building blocks and thresholds. The rules also take into consideration the hierarchy of data, such as mixture test data, component test data, published-classifications, and self-classifications.
