You can find a basic listing at the ILO: ork/cis/products/safetytm/clasann4.htm  Note that this is listed in the "legacy" directory of their web site, however.

Under the GHS, S-phrases have wording that is to be supplied by the manufacturer.  See http://www.ilpi.c om/msds/ref/safetyphrases.html for a concise listing of phrases.  Ideally, these would be identical for pure materials, but I would expect to see some variation/discrepancy based on manufacturer (just as we see on current MSDS's).  And, of course, there are (sometimes significant) variations even for "pure" materials - the risks/hazards for aluminum vary over the continuum between aluminum nanopowders and solid aluminum ingots, for example.

General GHS reference: f/ghs.html

Does anyone know of a source of R-S Phrases assigned to pure chemicals?  Searching through MSDSs is tedious and with the growth of GHS a list is becoming important
