Deadlines are Approaching for Globally Harmonized System

Customer Awareness Worldwide

ghs- global harmonized sysem symbols-compressedThe Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals is a system developed by the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development.  The universal symbols  are meant to be used by manufacturers and distributors to label and communicate hazard among  countries worldwide.

Regulators here in the United States have given chemical manufacturers until June 1, 2015 to have all their products reclassified using the new GHS system as well as developing new labels and SDS’s (Safety Data Sheets).  Past this date, manufacturers can no longer ship out any products not compliant with GHS system while distributors will have until December 1, 2015 to become fully complaint.

Please contact Midway Container if you need more information or assistance related to meeting these requirements.

Resin Increase

We are once again on an upward incline as resin is up .09/lb. across the board. We were notified that resin has gone up due to the strong export demand and higher ethylene prices in the spot market. This was a part of a 2 step increase. The first being a .05/lb. increase going into effect on January 4th and the second being a .04/lb. increase going into effect on February 1st.

We will continue to keep you posted on the situation as we ride it out. We are hoping to be at the peak and hopefully go down once again. We will provide you with additional information related to this as it becomes available.

We thank you for your attention to this and also for all of the opportunities to do business together.
