Starting in January 2015, you will notice a change in our chemical label format. If you are not aware, a few years ago OSHA approved a change to the UN’s “The Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals” (known as “GHS”). Before this approval, the USA had its own standards for chemical labeling and communications. Add this to the many other countries with their own standards, and you can see where confusion may come in. Many countries worked together to create a common standard for hazard communications. With this, many countries have adopted this new standard. The USA requires that manufacturers & distributors implement this standard by June 1, 2015.
CleanCraft and its subsidiaries are transitioning to this standard starting January 1, 2015. This will be a gradual change over the course of a few months. So, you will start noticing some label changes on your products and SDS’s (formally called MSDS sheets). Don’t be alarmed. The product is still the same. The dilution ratios are still the same. We are just required to communicate information in a standard format with certain “signal words” and “pictograms.” In fact, over the next year, you will find the same changes for all professional & industrial chemicals that you purchase from any vendor.
So, rest assured that CleanCraft is on the ball and ahead of schedule for implementing these new changes. We appreciate your business and look forward to providing you some of the best carpet cleaning products in the market!
