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

In Pakistan there are numerous Acts rules and regulations for chemical management, safety, specific chemical categories (pesticides, explosives), and chemical environmental impact. However, there are no regulations or guidelines that specifically relate to SDS authoring in Pakistan. Indirectly the Pakistan Environmental Protection Act (PEPA), 1997 refers to procedures for handling “hazardous substances”. Based on the Environmental Act the Pakistan chemical regulations for packaging and labeling fall under the draft legislation Hazardous Substances Rules, 2003. According to the Hazardous Substances Rules, 2003 in order to import a hazardous substance, a license must be issued by the Pakistan Environmental Protection Agency (PEPA). Any activity involving hazardous materials (Production, storage, Disposal, Handling, Distribution, Marketing, Importation and Transportation) requires an application for a license in accordance with the provisions of Section 14. Further, an Environmental impact assessment (EIA) must accompany an application for a license, and should be produced in accordance with PEPA (Review of IEE and EIA) Regulations 2000.

Additional Regulations: 

As mentioned above there are numerous Acts and regulations relating to chemical management, for a complete list (chapter 4, pg 151-200) and more in-depth information refer to the National Profile for Chemical Management in Pakistan 2009.
