There is NO one agreed upon source for GHS classifications and GHS H/P phrases for chemical substances. This is a topic for discussion at the UN GHS meeting in July.
Besides the EU, New Zealand has published GHS classifications and H/P phrases for substances - searchable on-line.
S earch =AB ERMA New Zealand
Japan has also published GHS classifications and H/P phrases for subs tances - downloadable in English.
NITE - Chemical Management Field - Information about the status of implementation of GHS in Japan
The EU, New Zealand and Japanese GHS lists do not all agree.
