Summary of GHS Chemical Classification in Various Regions Now Available
The table can be seen here and shows which OECD member countries and other organisations have publicly posted their GHS classifications no the internet. The table is based on a survey performed in 2011. Where available, OECD has provided links to the appropriate documents and web access points (e.g., to the 1300+ page CLP in Europe). Other links take you to web sites, for example, Korea's New Chemical Notification and Assessment.
The Fourth Revised Edition of the UN Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (the "Purple Book") can be downloaded on the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) site.
