Safety Data Sheet (SDS) requirements are specified in regulation (EC) 1907/2006 (REACH)
but these have been amended by regulation (EU) 453/2010 which came into force in
December 2010. This new regulation introduces many changes including numerous sub-headings
under which information must be supplied (there are some circumstances under which
it is acceptable to state that no information is available) and the requirement to
provide information on Exposure Scenarios (ES).
All Safety Data Sheets issued within the EU after December 2010 must comply with
this new regulation.
Within the UK the CHIP legislation has been amended such that the REACH requirements
apply to the UK.
Although the legislation applies to chemicals rather than articles (objects) some
manufacturers find it useful to have a Product Safety Data Sheet particularly if
the product contains several chemicals (Power cables are an example: these consist
of a number of layers, each of different chemical composition. Some customers require
information on the hazards relating to these layers and this can be provided in a
Product Safety Data Sheet). ATSL has experience at providing such sheets.
Prepare a SDS or MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet) in compliance with the new legislation,
using CHIP or CLP classifications as appropriate.
Update your existing SDS / MSDS to meet the current requirements.
Prepare a Product Safety Data Sheet.
Provide a system for managing the MSDSs for the materials that you use. We have a
simple, proven and very efficient document management system: ‘HAZTROL’
We provide a rapid turnaround service for the provision of Safety Data Sheets. It
is possible to provide a SDS / MSDS within 24 hours (or less it necessary).
Please note that our Safety Data Sheets are prepared by people, not software.
