GHS stands for the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals.
GHS is a system to standardize the way hazardous materials are classified. The idea is that the same criteria will be used all over the world to determine if a material is flammable, toxic or corrosive etc. We are then assured that if a material is considered toxic in China it will also be so in the USA, Europe, Brazil and elsewhere around the Globe. It also helps to minimize or prevent adverse effects of chemicals in the workplace.
BS5609 is an international standard of certification that measures the suitability of a specialized label for use on chemical containers for shipment by sea.
The BS5609 labeling certification means that if a chemical drum was to fall of a vessel in the ocean and was to wash to shore, the label needs to be readable so that someone knows how to handle the possibly deadly chemical. These are the most durable labels available for this application.

Digital UV ink printing is unique compared to other, conventional printing methods because it’s FAST, durable, and there are no plate or die changes, making it very cost effective. The quality and speed of UV digital printing lets DLS deliver high-quality GHS labels on approved materials for smaller print runs with quantities as little as 100 labels.
DLSdigital also allows for custom variable printing for different containers all on one run, and by being BS5609 certified for Section 2 and 3, we can ensure businesses are operating under current regulations. Larger print runs will continue to run on our fleet of flexographic presses that are also GHS BS5609 certified with Section 2 and 3 compliant inks and media. DLS even pre-prints labels to be run through your customer’s thermal printers if variable imaging is needed.
