The effort to produce a “Global Harmonized System” has not been successful, but continues to be a regulatory format. The framework for which has already been established by federal, state, tribal and local government authorities.
The Committee recognizes the federal government has standardized reporting to it from multiple agencies in the CROMERR (Cross-Media Electronic Reporting Regulation) standard. The Next-Generation-Compliance (Next Gen) initiative of the EPA is included in our scope of work.
