Cyprus SDS Reformatting/Editing and MSDS Reformatting/Editing

Jurisdiction: 
Primary Languages: 
Secondary Languages: 
National Regulations Governing SDSs/MSDSs: 

Cyprus is a member of the European Union and as such is bound by EU regulations. For pure substances, Cyprus SDSs must be compliant with the EU’s GHS based CLP-regulation No. 1272/2008 – SDSs authored to be compliant with Directive 67/548/EEC have expired. For mixtures, SDSs can be compliant with either 1272/2008 or with the previous Directive 1999/45/EC.

Additional Regulations: 

Cyprus is fully compliant with EU chemical regulation, refer here to view full legislation of the Cyprus Chemical Substances Law of 2010 (Law 78(I)/2010). For additional information on Cyprus chemical policy please refer to the Department of Labour Inspection chemical substance page.

GHS Implementation Status: 

The EU has fully adopted GHS under their CLP Regulation (Regulation on classification, labeling and packaging of substances and mixtures). The deadline for having new SDSs has passed for pure substances – it was November 30, 2010. The deadline for mixtures was May 31, 2015. Not all the building blocks in the United Nations’ Purple Book were adopted by the EU CLP regulation. Furthermore, the EU has adopted the EU No 453/2010 format for SDSs, which goes well beyond what was recommended in the Purple Book.

Multi-Jurisdiction SDS/MSDS Options: 

It is relatively straight forward to have a single MSDS for use among the countries of the European Union and European Free Trade Association, so long as it is in the necessary languages. Countries other than Cyprus in the EU and EFTA where Greek is an official language include Greece. Having a single document for use in the United States and the European Union should be avoided due to significant differences between the two systems.

Testimonial

We help US and International clients prepare their chemical packaging labeling for marketing success in Canada. It has been my pleasure to work with Nexreg for the last 2 years on many domestic and international jobs. They have provided my company, and my clients, with CCCR determination and other product assessments in a timely, professional and forthright manner. Their employees, such as James Dayus, have been proactive, professional and personable. I trust them to talk directly to my clients and they have never let me down on professional document completion or deadlines. They are great to work with and I wholeheartedly endorse their work.
