15 August 2017 - 16 August 2017

INTRODUCTION
The production and use of chemicals are fundamental factors in the economic development of all countries, whether they are industrialized or developing. In one way or another, chemicals affect directly or indirectly the lives of all humans. The first and most essential step leading to safe use of chemicals is to know their identity, hazards to health and the environment and the means to control them. The information on the hazards and corresponding protective measures can be identified and conveyed to the user in a form that is easy to understand. The hazard classification and labelling process is an essential tool for establishing an effective information transfer so that the degree of the hazard the chemical represents for man and the environment can be recognized.
