I have not had the chance to really review the issue yet. I would like to request list members to provide any and all examples of incompatible storage issues that they are aware of under GHS.
I would like to add these bullets to the training to be provided shortly that is due before December. Since I have not seen anything equivalent or similar on the “official” pages, the list may be a great place to start the discussion.
Also … under ‘acutely toxic (Severe)’ you could get incompatibles, e.g., cyanide salts and concentrated nitric acid.
Also under the corrosive you have oxidizing acids and organic acids as incompatible.

> The only problem is for the corrosive class, that contains acids and bases. So you can not rely completely on GHS for storage, as these products are not compatible.
Good point; I thought of that after I sent the e-mail. I wonder if there are other examples of incompatibilities within GHS classes (for example, explosives?).
