AIHA Signs Pact with Society for Chemical Hazard Communication

The agreement commits all parties to developing and maintaining the SDS registry program for chemical hazard communication.

According to a press release, the American Industrial Hygiene Associatino has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the AIHA Registry Programs, LLC and the Society for Chemical Hazard Communication. This agreement commits all parties to developing and maintaining the safety data sheets (SDS) registry program for chemical hazard communication and environment health professionals.

The SDS & Label Authoring Registry program gives credentials to qualified individuals who show proficiency tied to the requirements of the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS).

"AIHA has a focus on strategic partnerships, and we often hold up our relationship with SCHC as the model for how a good partnership should work," said AIHA President Daniel H. Anna, Ph.D., CIH, CSP.  "We are really proud of the work we have done together, and we are looking forward to our next phase of this relationship."

The agreement allows both organizations to work together in order to maintain the technical framework that supports the registry. It also allows them to assemble a team of experts and an advisory group.
