Suitability – Limit GHS labelling on final product
How do I add suitability constraints which limit GHS Labelling on the final product?
Suitability Constraints are compliance rules which are applied when you perform a Suitability Check. They are usually used to check compliance to regulatory and customer specific rules on final product labelling and ingredient use /non-use. CLP is the EU version of GHS, so setup follows the same principles.
Suitability Constraints are added in ‘Manage Suitability Constraints’, press ‘Add’ then:
A few examples follow.
Note: You should add the suitability check to an appropriate party. If you think the suitability checks will be common to many customers you can add a regulatory party to which you can apply multiple checks (e.g. you could add a party group called ‘Exclamation pictogram allowed on final product’). You can then associate many customers with this party group and this will apply the checks to those customers (to do this, modify the customer, go to ‘related Parties’ tab, and add the regulatory party group as a ‘Parties Belonged to’ party.
As GHS labelling does not apply to all final product types (food, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals) you may wish to set up an application ‘GHS Products’ (or ‘CLP Products’) to which the individual applications are associated by placing them in ‘Belonging Applications’. The new application, which represents the group should then be used in the Constraints.
To limit the final product label to avoid Aspiration Hazard (AH 1) hazard and the exploding chest pictogram
To limit the final product to avoid an Environmental pictogram
To limit the final product label to avoid Skin Corrosion hazard pictogram
To limit the final product label to avoid Eye Corrosion hazard pictogram
To limit the final product label to avoid Carcinogenic Human Health pictogram
Add remaining properties as appropriate for your industry and the hazards which are relevant.
You could add all these checks to a single Suitability Constraint but they are best separated because when you perform a suitability check and generate a report this approach gives more useful information about compliance.
In all cases check you should test the checks to ensure they are working in the way you require.
