          The Globally Harmonized System (GHS) of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals is a system harmonized internationally concerning how to communicate using labeling or safe data sheet (SDS) classification results of the hazards of chemical substances based on a set standard. In Japan, from 2006, the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare, and Ministry of the Environment have been conducting in cooperation a classification of substances mainly regulated by PRTR, the Industrial Safety and Health Act, and the Poisonous and Deleterious Substances Control Act, as obligated for the preparation of SDS. The final classification results are available from the NITE website, and for each substance, the classification, pictogram, signal word, hazard information, rationale for the classification, etc., for each hazard class are posted. GHS classification results by the Japanese government are intended to be referred to when a business operator creates the label and SDS, and there is no obligation for the label and SDS to have the same exact content.

          Chemical Substances Hazard Assessment Reports are chemical substance assessment documents that are published following deliberations by experts. They are based on chemical substance safety information obtained from documents, reports, etc. The Initial Risk Assessment Report is a report created based on the initial risk assessment methods developed by NEDO in its Chemical Substance Risk Assessment and Risk Assessment Method Development Project. These assessment methods are compiled in the Guidelines for Initial Risk Assessment Reports (theory of assessment) and the Preparation Manual for Initial Risk Assessment Reports (concrete steps for preparing assessment reports).
