GHS stands for the Globally Harmonised System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals and is a global system used to label chemical substances for transport.
Our GHS Label Printing solution enables manufacturers to produce colour-printed labels for transporting and using hazardous materials. With colour laser printers from Lexmark, you can save time and reduce waste by printing only the labels you need, when you need them.
With our GHS Label Printing solution, you can:
With the need for colour pictogrammes and the desire for consistent corporate branding, printing in colour is the answer. By using colour printers, you can achieve consistent labels that meet both GHS requirements and your company brand guidelines. And, you can print all aspects of the label at once using blank label stock.
Some companies use pre-printed colour label stock for every combination of pictogrammes required for creating proper labels. There’s a better way. With colour printing, use blank label stock to print complete GHS labels when and where you need them, and eliminate the inventory tasks for managing pre-printed stock combinations.
We partner with leading media providers to print labels that withstand tough environments. Lexmark is one of only two printer companies that meet the 90-day seawater submersion test required for the International Maritime Dangerous Goods (IMDG) code and the British Standard (BS) 5609 Marine Immersion Label Testing Standard for international shipments of hazardous materials. Most printers can’t meet the complex requirements for producing hazardous chemical labels. Lexmark printers do.
Get full control over the production of your GHS labels by combining our printing solution with our GHS Label Publishing solution. Our publishing and printing solutions help solve many of the challenges around complying with GHS regulations through streamlined and efficient processes for creating, updating and producing chemical labels.
