Resources » Global legal requirements for emergency telephone numbers - Webinar
Different legislators around the world have different requirements that must be met to ensure compliance with their specific regulations. Some require that the number be a local phone number located in their country; that it is answered in the official language of their country; or is operational 24 hours a day.
Sometimes this requirement is detailed in the dangerous goods regulations but more often this obligation is due to the implementation of the Global Harmonised System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS) and the standard safety data sheet (SDS) requirements.
In addition to the various national requirements a 24 hour emergency number is required for international air transport. At present this is due to State and Operator variations.
Furthermore, China have some very specific rules which it is important to understand and comply with given the high levels of testing likely following the Tianjin explosion.
This webinar, hosted by ChemAdvisor and delivered by NCEC, provides an expert introduction to the global legal requirements for emergency telephone numbers gathered from NCEC’s 40+ years of experience as leaders in the Chemical Emergency Response sector.
