NITE-Gmiccs contains the GHS Classification Result by the Japanese Government as basic data. Every year, when the GHS Classification Result by the Japanese Government are updated, NITE registers the latest version of the data to NITE-Gmiccs.
Water (CAS RN: 7732-18-5) is not classified by the Japanese government, but the classification result is registered in NITE-Gmiccs for convenience. Also, "Unidentified substance" is registered as reference data. You could use when mixtures includes unknown impurities*.
*"Unidentified substance" has no data on hazard classification. NITE-Gmiccs can not classify correctly when mixtures include much of “Unidentified substance”. We strongly recommend using substance with enough evidence.
The errata on toxicity value for GHS classification results by the Japanese government are posted on the following web page.
NITE-Gmiccs contains the CLP harmonized classification listed in Table 3 in Annex VI of CLP Regulation "Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 16 December 2008 on classification, labelling and packaging of substances and mixtures." The CLP Regulation aligns the European Union system of classification chemical substances and mixtures to GHS. The harmonized classification of hazardous substances is updated through an "Adaptation to Technical Progress (ATP)" which is issued regularly by the European Commission.
NITE makes no warranty concerning the data packaged with the system or the results obtained by its use. Furthermore, the NITE is not liable for any damage sustained in connection with results obtained from the system or its use. Use the results obtained from the system at your own risk.
As for latest information of CLP harmonized classification, please refer to the Annex VI of CLP Regulation.
NITE-Gmiccs uses UN numbers as supplementary data for GHS classification. It is possible to judge some physical hazards from the "Hazard class" and "Packing Group" associated with the UN number. In addition, the Guide number associated with the UN number (based on the Emergency Response Guidebook) is printed on the label. The UN number consists of four digits, but because there are differences in the item names and packing group specified even with the same UN number, this system uses a one-digit serial number to supplement the information.
