Ireland SDS Reformatting/Editing and MSDS Reformatting/Editing

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

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

Ireland is fully compliant with EU chemical regulations. To see the relevant legislation please refer to the Chemicals Act 2008.

GHS Implementation Status: 

Ireland 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.

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 Ireland in the EU where English is an official language include the United Kingdom. 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.
