On November 13, Nicholas Georges, Director, Scientific & International Affairs, attended two public meetings in preparation for the upcoming session of the UN Sub-Committee. The two meetings included the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (UNSCEGHS), hosted by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

The second meeting was with the UN Sub-Committee Experts on the Transport of Dangerous Goods (UNSCETDG), hosted by the Department of Transportation (DOT) Pipeline and Hazardous Material Safety Administration (PHMSA).

These meetings discussed proposed changes to the flammability of chemicals under pressure and aerosols. For members that are interested, the Aerosol Products Division International Harmonization Committee works on these issues.

Please contact Nicholas Georges at ngeorges@thehcpa.org for any additional questions or comments.
