I did find this one, but it doesnŐt seem to explain the information you describe: http://www.sigmaaldrich.com/safety-center/globally-harmonized.html Could you resend your link?

Comm. Std., which is US law. Please see the Sigma-Aldrich MSDS for 4,4'-Methylenedianiline as an example of why the carcinogenic data is formatted this way. http://www.sigmaaldrich.com/catalog/DisplayMSDSContent.do Beth Beth Shepard / Technical Compliance Specialist Regulatory Compliance 6000 N.

Monona In a message dated 9/28/2010 2:00:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time, rstuart**At_Symbol_Here**UVM.EDU writes: 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. - Ralph P.S.
