About the Global Harmonised Submission and Transport Standard

The Global Harmonised Submission Transport Standard (GHSTS) is a standardised set of technical specifications used to assemble electronic files for any pesticide package in a predefined manner. Microsoft Word and Excel, Adobe PDF, and XML data files are just some of the file types which can be transferred using the GHSTS according to business needs. Once the files are assembled according to the specifications, they can be transferred from a business entity to a regulatory authority. The receiving regulatory authority can extract the files for use in a regulatory process. The GHSTS can be used to create electronic packages for other regulatory purposes and domains as well.
