Brazil to Align with GHS Rev. 7

‼️ Placing Chemicals on the Brazilian Market? ⚠️ Rules are about to change.

NBR 14725, the most critical regulation when it comes to the application of GHS in Brazil, is going to be updated.

What we know so far

The NBR 14725 update project has already gone through 3 national consultations – in October 2020, April 2022, and the latest one in October 2022;

The new standard will no longer be divided into 4 parts, rather all its content will be presented in a single part much more extensive and complete than the current version;

The content of the new regulation will be based on the 7th GHS Revision;

The naming of SDS in Portuguese currently “FISPQ” will be updated to “FDS” as in Ficha com Dados de Segurança;
All labels and FDS will have to be updated.

After the official publication, companies will have a 24-month transition period to comply! ⏲️
