Safety Data Sheet (SDS) translation services

Hazardous chemical suppliers are demanded to provide a safety data sheet in the official language of each country where a chemical is being produced, distributed, and sold. It is important to note that Safety data sheet is never just a direct translation. As a result of SDS translation service, Chementors Oy prepares a high-class safety data sheet to our clients, which fully complies with the current regulations.

Localized chemical SDS document for your target country standards

In our SDS translation service, Safety Data Sheets can be offered for several countries. Depending on the country and region, SDSs have different requirements and standards. Translations can for example be documents in accordance with European CLP or UN GHS, which take into account the local legislation and the official language(s) of the country of destination.

Compliance with local regulations

• Europe SDS

EU-CLP: According to the REACH Regulation (1907/2006) the safety data sheet shall be supplied in an official language of the EU country where the substance or mixture is placed on the market.
It should be noted that certain EU countries require that the SDS should be provided in a more than one official language. Also, workplace exposure limit values, Occupational Exposure Limits and emergency telephone numbers vary between the EU countries.

GB-CLP: the EU CLP and REACH Regulation have been replaced by the GB CLP and UK REACH in Great Britain in 2021. Additionally, The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has replaced European Chemicals Agency’s role as authority.
The classification of chemicals placed on the market in Northern Ireland is regulated by a European regulation known as EU CLP as well as EU REACH continues to apply in Northern Ireland.

• Canada SDS

The Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) is Canada’s national hazard communication standard. It is a system for providing health and safety information on hazardous products intended for use, handling, or storage in Canada. Canada has harmonised WHMIS with the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS). Chemical suppliers must use and follow the WHMIS 2015 requirements for safety data sheets (SDSs) for hazardous products sold, distributed, or imported into Canada.

• Asia Pacific SDS

Countries in Asia and Pacific have their own regulations.

• USA SDS

In the USA, SDS are regulated by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). SDS must comply with OSHA Hazard Communication Standard, 29 CFR1910.1200. In addition, e.g. The NFPA diamond should be visible in the safety data sheets. The NFPA classification system is a standard system developed in the United States that demonstrates the health, flammability, reactivity, and special hazards of many hazardous chemicals using NFPA 704 Diamond.
