In the United States the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Hazard Communication Standard “U.S. DOL, OSHA, 29 CFR 1910.1200” sets out the regulations that govern the authoring of SDS’s. For more information please refer to the OSHA Brief – Hazard Communication Standard: Safety Data Sheets.

California Proposition 65 “Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986” requires that you determine whether any of the hazardous chemicals in a product formula are subject to Proposition 65 requirements.

GHS Implementation Status: 

The Hazard Communication Standard (Hazcom 2012) brought the US more in line with the UN GHS based system. The transition period from 2013 to 2016 for all chemical manufacturers, importers, distributors and all employers to conform to the new standard has now passed. As of June 1st, 2016, everyone must comply with the modified provisions of the final rule.

Multi-Jurisdiction SDS/MSDS Options: 

A US SDS may be combined with Canadian regulations. Mexico has implemented GHS, it is not recommended to combine with US documents

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.
