eChemPortal upgraded with improved access to information on chemicals classifications
The OECD eChemPortal, a web portal which offers comprehensive information on chemical substances, has been updated to offer better access to chemical classifications. The classifications follow the Globally Harmonised System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS), which the Classification, Labelling and Packaging (CLP) Regulation is based on.
A new search by GHS classification allows users to view classifications, which have undergone a review by a regulatory body or an intergovernmental organisation. The first data sources linked to through this search are the C&L Inventory of ECHA and the GHS Classification Results by the Japanese Government.
ECHA contributes to the project management of the eChemPortal, in cooperation with the OECD, and is one of the main data providers to the portal.
