In April 2016, South Korea's Ministry of Employment and Labour (MoEL) has published a notice no. 2016-19 to revise its GHS standard MoEL public notice 2013-37 the standard for classification labeling of chemical substance and material safety data sheet. The new standard stipulates the latest chemical classification criteria, the content of SDSs/labelling, and phrases for various hazard and precautionary statements in Korean.
The new standard is aligned with UN GHS Rev. 4. Compared to MoEL public notice 2013-37, the new standard adds a new hazard category hazardous to the ozone layer, aligns all hazard statements, precautionary statements and codes with UN GHS Rev. 4 and changes the names of old regulations such as TCCA to K-REACH and Chemical Control Act (CCA).
