SDS Safety Data Sheet

The SDS Safety Data Sheet (formerly known as MSDS – Material Safety Data Sheet) is a document required for all types of substances that are considered dangerous. Usage of goods containing such substances without the SDS is prohibited in all professional environments. The obligation stems from Art. 31 of the REACH directive – regulation (EC) no 1907/2006. This lengthy document includes descriptions of hazards of a given substance or chemical mixture, as well as a description of physiochemical data of the product. It also warns the user about the dangers of particular products and includes advice about safety precautions. Before you start importing such goods, make sure to check whether the supplier provides the Safety Data Sheet.
