    EU SDS authoring FAQs

    SDS stands for Safety Data Sheet. It is a compilation of information that describes the intrinsic properties of the substance or mixture; the physical, human health, and environmental health hazards; instructions for safe handling, storing, transport and disposal; first-aid, firefighting, and exposure control measures.

    The Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS) is a standard developed by the United Nations (UN) to globally standardize and harmonize the classification and labelling of chemicals. UN-GHS serves as a referenced standard so that each country and region can adopt its content and format to develop country/region-specific GHS versions.
    Member states in the European Union have established an EU-own version of GHS through the Regulation 1272/2008 (CLP) which regulates the Classification, Labelling, and Packaging of the products that are going to be placed on EU markets. EU CLP came into force in 2009.

    EU Safety data sheets are valid as long as their contents and format remain up-to-date with the current legislation.

    Yes, they are. The EU requirements on the format and content of safety data sheets are regulated by the REACH Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006, and the criteria for classification and labeling of substances and mixtures are determined by the CLP Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008.

    The manufacturer or importer is responsible for writing a fully compliant SDS according to EU regulations.
    Based on the information or the initial SDS provided by their suppliers, other actors in the supply chain should also provide a SDS which is customized to the specific needs of their customers, for instance target customers, specific uses or exposure scenarios etc.
