United Nations (UN) Roster consultative Status GHS

United Nations (UN) Roster consultative Status

At its Substantive Session in July 2003, the following status was granted to EIGA:
(Non Governmental Organization), which means that EIGA may designate official representatives to the United Nations - to the United Nations Headquarter in New York and the United Nations offices in Geneva and Vienna.
The regular presence of our organization will allow EIGA to participate effectively and fruitfully in this consultative relationship.


The work on the globally harmonised system for classification and labelling of chemicals has produced the first edition of the “Purple book” at the end of 2002. EIGA has actively participated in the work and continues to do so by proposing amendments and additions.
