National Regulations Governing SDSs/MSDSs: 

In the Russian Federation it is unclear whether there is a legally binding requirement to provide a Safety Data Sheet (SDS). However, there is a draft regulation “GOST 30333-2007: Chemical production safety passport. General requirements” That may come into force shortly, and will make SDS’s mandatory in Russia.

Additional Regulations: 

In Russia there are numerous legislative acts that pertain to chemical management. However, as Russia moves to align its legislation with the UN GHS, the following draft regulations have been approved and may become mandatory soon:

  • GOST 31340-2007: “Labelling of chemicals. General requirements”
  • GOST R 53856-2010: Classification of chemical hazards. General requirements
  • GOST R 53855-2010: Classification of chemicals hazardous due their physical and chemical properties. Test methods for explosives.
