The GHSTS version 2.0 is released

17 July 2019

A major update of the Globally Harmonised Submission and Transport Standard (GHSTS), version 2.0, was published on 17 July 2019. 

The improvements are described in the GHSTS format specification document.

GHSTS v2.0 supports use in other regulated domains as well as the pesticides domain. GHSTS v2.0 also includes improvements in the lifecycle management of documents over a series of submissions for one regulatory action.

The GHSTS is a standardised set of technical specifications used to assemble electronic files in a predefined manner for evaluation. Once assembled according to the specifications, the files within the dossier can be transferred from a business entity to a regulatory authority and can be extracted for use in a regulatory process.

Regulatory authorities in the pesticide and other regulated domains are invited to use the GHSTS.
