Yes, Sigma-Aldrich uses most of the GHS SDS form, but still reverts to the "Not listed as a carcinogen by IARC, NTP & OSHA" kind of statement instead of the GHS system that only allows the statement "no data available."

I'm curious if people have been noticing Globally Harmonized System style hazard communication information showing up in the laboratory chemical world. I'm thinking in terms of labels, safety data sheets, technical bulletins, etc. I looked at two Sigma/Aldrich MSDS's from the web and one from 2010 used the system and one from 2004 that didn't. I wonder what percent of the lab world is seeing this information and is aware of this change at this point?
Any observations or comments would be appreciated.
P.S. Anyone who'd like a good primer on the GHS system in the lab context, as well as many lab safety subjects, would do well to pick up
