Current WHMIS Requirements
Ontario has amended the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA) and the WHMIS Regulation to adopt new, international standards that are part of the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS). The changes reflect recent amendments to the federal Hazardous Products Act and new Hazardous Products Regulations.
The new requirements come into effect July 1, 2016. There is a transition period – until December 1, 2018 – to phase out the old requirements. During the transition, both the old and the new requirements are in effect.
