Each individual container in the test kit needs to be labeled with the new requirements.

I did a GHS training for a lab audience today and someone asked whether the GHS requirements will apply to the components of test kits. They said that the safety documentation with these kits tends to be skimpy and that it would be helpful to have GHS pictograms on the components. I hadn't thought about this question before and was wondering if people on DCHAS-L have experience with answering it.

Thanks for any help with this.
