The signs will be composed by black symbols surrounded by red borders on a white background. Part of them are very similar to the old ones but there are several signs which are completely different.
In order to help the users to get used with the new symbols, the Chemical Hazards Communications offer the people to download a short guide from the Internet. The file can be founded on www.understandthelabel.org.uk.
The new system for the warning labels is going to ease the consumers especially when they travel as well as the businessmen who import and export chemical products. The work of the cleaners will be also easier if they have to work with foreign products.
Those of you who haven’t seen the system yet can be calm because there will be a transitional period before the new labels replace completely the old ones.
