GHS Hazardous Chemical Information List

The GHS Hazardous Chemical Information List contains chemicals classified by an authoritative source (such as the European Commission or NICNAS) in accordance with the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (the GHS). This list contains the vast majority of chemicals currently in HSIS.

Important Information:

This document may be updated without notice. Please ensure you are using the most up to date version of this document, which is available through the link above.

Not all chemicals in HSIS have been classified under the GHS. A link to the relevant HSIS page has been included for these chemicals. GHS classification information may be provided for these chemicals in the future.

Many chemicals in this list have not been assessed for all hazard categories. Where physicochemical hazards are not listed please refer to a reputable source such as the Australian Dangerous Goods Code for further information.

This list is not comprehensive. Many hazardous chemicals are not included in this list. It is the responsibility of the Australian manufacturer/importer to determine if their product is a hazardous chemical and if so, to correctly classify their product.

The classifications in this list may include hazard properties which are not required by the model Work Health and Safety Regulations, such as environmental hazard properties.
