WHMIS MSDS Reference Manual - Section 29

Health Canada's WHMIS MSDS reference manual for section 29 is available at: WHMIS Requirements of the HPA and CPR, CPR Section 29. One of the important points they note is as follows:


"All information disclosed on MSDSs and labels, whether it be directly related to health and safety or other information such as, for example, the supplier identifier, must be accurate at the time of sale of the controlled product."


"In some cases, new information may become available, for example, as a result of further testing of the product. Revisions to the MSDS and/or label are expected to be made only if the new information is meaningful with respect to health and safety. Thus the supplier will be required to judge the significance of the new information in relation to health and safety."


"On all sales or importations of the product subsequent to the new information becoming available, the new label must be applied and the new MSDS must be sent. There is no obligation on the supplier to send the updated label or MSDS to previous customers if there is no subsequent sale."
