Safety data sheets

The REACH regulation requires chemical manufacturers, importers, blenders and traders to deliver up to date safety data sheets (SDS). SDS’s must be compiled according to the detailed requirements for the content and format given in the regulation.

Safety data sheet is a legal document and the supplier of the product is responsible for the contents of the SDS. SDS’s must be delivered free of charge in the official languages of the receiving country at the latest the day the product is delivered to the customer. Having the SDS’s available on a website does not fulfill the requirements of REACH Regulation.

REACH Regulation determines the content of the SDS, but CLP Regulation states the classification of the product, as well as the labelling. See more on SDS and CLP Regulation and REACH Regulation.

Example of an SDS

Labelling

The contents of the warning label are precisely set in the CLP regulation. The label must show all the relevant information about the hazards of the product as well as the safe use of it. Labelling needs to be in line with the labelling given in the SDS. Transition to the CLP classification in labelling is quite a large project, since it involves not only labels, but SDS’s as well.

Example of a CLP label

Exposure scenarios

In connection with registering the substances, manufacturers and EU importers are required to compile exposure scenarios for determining the safe use of the substance. Exposure scenarios are to be delivered with the safety data sheet. The downstream user is to include the suitable sections of the received exposure scenarios in their own safety data sheet to inform their customers on safe and approved use of the chemical.
