Eval­u­at­ing and Strength­en­ing National and Regional Capac­i­ties for Imple­ment­ing the Glob­ally Har­mo­nized Sys­tem of Clas­si­fi­ca­tion and Labelling of Chem­i­cals (GHS) and Sup­port­ing SAICM Imple­men­ta­tion in Cen­tral and East­ern Europe

The over­all objec­tive of the project is to enable coun­tries of the CEE region to work towards coor­di­nated imple­men­ta­tion of SAICM and con­tribute to GHS imple­men­ta­tion and the pro­tec­tion of human health and the envi­ron­ment from dan­ger­ous chemicals.

This project aims at analysing the sta­tus of chem­i­cal haz­ard clas­si­fi­ca­tion and com­mu­ni­ca­tion, and GHS imple­men­ta­tion at the national and regional lev­els. The over­all objec­tive of the project is to enable Cen­tral and East­ern Euro­pean coun­tries to lay the ground­work for con­sid­er­ing region­ally coor­di­nated imple­men­ta­tion of the GHS and thus con­tribute to the imple­men­ta­tion of SAICM, and the pro­tec­tion of human health and the envi­ron­ment from dan­ger­ous chemicals.

Project out­comes:

  • Strength­ened regional and national coor­di­na­tion among con­cerned min­istries and stake­hold­ers for enabling SAICM imple­men­ta­tion and GHS capac­ity building
  • An assess­ment of the capac­ity build­ing needs of the region for GHS implementation
  • A frame­work GHS imple­men­ta­tion strat­egy drafted and ready for adoption
  • Addi­tional gov­ern­ment offi­cials and stake­hold­ers trained on the GHS
  • A com­pleted regional GHS work­shop • Strength­ened regional and inter­na­tional out­reach regard­ing the GHS and SAICM
