Metal specificities under GHS

ICMM and Eurometaux, supported by their members, have been working since 2012 on the update/alignment of Annex 9 (section 9.7) and Annex 10 (Transformation/Dissolution protocol) of the UN GHS text. This work was done within a Correspondence Group mandated by the UN GHS sub-committee. A final agreement on these updates was reached in December 2022 and changes are included in the 10th revision of the UN GHS text.
