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

Denmark is a member of the European Union and as such is bound by EU regulations. For pure substances, Danish 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: 

In Denmark the majority of existing chemical law is common to the EU. However, there are a number of executive orders relating to heavy metals, greenhouse gases and protective equipment which may vary from current EU legislation. To get more information and see Denmark’s full Act on Chemical Substances and products refer here.

GHS Implementation Status: 

Denmark SDS or MSDS Authoring 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.
