The GHS addresses classification of chemicals by types of hazard and proposes harmonized hazard communication elements, including labels and safety data sheets. It aims at ensuring that information on physical hazards and toxicity from chemicals be available in order to enhance the protection of human health and the environment during the handling, transport and use of these chemicals.

The GHS also provides a basis for harmonization of rules and regulations on chemicals at national, regional and worldwide level.

Known as the "Purple Book". Revisions include new provisions for the allocation of hazard statements and for the labeling of small packaging, two new sub-categories for respiratory and skin sensitization, the revision of the classification criteria for long-term hazards (chronic toxicity) to the aquatic environment, and a new hazard class for substances and mixtures hazardous to the ozone layer.

The Eight revised edition of the GHS contains a number of amendments, some newly added content and guidance relating to the classification and labelling of chemical substances and mixtures. These include:

- revised criteria for categorisation of flammable gases within Category 1;
- miscellaneous amendments intended to clarify the definitions of some health hazard classes;
- additional guidance to extend the coverage of section 14 of the Safety Data Sheets to all bulk cargoes, regardless of their physical state, transported under IMO instruments;
- revised and further rationalised precautionary statements in Annex 3; and a new example in Annex 7 addressing labelling of small packagings with fold-out labels.
