24 From GHS purple Book, First Revised Version 2005: ‘Countries are free to determine which of the building blocks will be applied in different parts of their systems. However, where a system covers something that is in the GHS, and implements the GHS, that coverage should be consistent.’ Information from the Report of the 12th Session of the UNSCEGHS (Geneva, December 2006) (a) Hazard classes are building blocks (b) Within a hazard class, each hazard category can be seen as a building block Building Block Approach BACK

25 Mazlin & Goh (10/05/07) Mutual Recognition Arrangements (MRAs) MRAs are agreements between two or more countries to mutually recognize or accept some or all aspects of one another’s country conformity assessment results. Advantages of MRAs are such as reduced costs, greater certainty for market access, increase competition and freer flow of trade.
