GHS pictograms

Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS)

This webpage displays:

  • the GHS pictograms applicable to sectors other than transport of dangerous goods (i.e. pictograms with the red border)
  • the pictograms for transport of dangerous goods (usually referred to as "labels" in transport of dangerous goods regulations) applicable to transport classes for which an equivalent GHS hazard class exists.

For hazard communication elements (labels and marks) applicable to other transport classes or transport conditions covered by transport of dangerous goods regulations but not addressed in the GHS (e.g. labels for classes 7 and 9; elevated temperature substance mark; lithium battery mark; etc) refer to Part 5 of the United Nations Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods, Model Regulations.

For further information on the allocation of GHS label elements, refer to Annex 1 to the GHS. To consult the official text of the GHS follow "Legal instruments and recommendations->GHS->GHS official text and corrigenda" on the left menu.
