SDS Review Services
Is it mandatory for an SDS to be up to date?
No country is required to adopt all or part of the GHS. However, it is important to comply with the country specific regulations to ensure that the products have an SDS with the necessary regulatory elements. The focus is to ensure that an SDS is available for every hazardous product, with the information required to help protect human health and the environment.
What are the risks if a company chooses not to comply or an SDS is outdated?
The risks if a company chooses not to comply could include worker accidents or serious injury, and unintended exposure to hazardous chemicals. Noncompliance for an SDS could also result in significant fines and penalties for the employer, supplier, or manufacturer.
Manufacturers are typically responsible for creating the product’s SDS, and the suppliers will then distribute them to the customers. Employers are responsible to make sure that all hazardous products have a compliant and up to date SDS that can be readily accessed by the employee at any time, especially for those who could be directly exposed to the product.
How Can Nexreg Ensure Your Compliance?
If you have an existing SDS for your intended country or an SDS that you doubt compliance for, Nexreg can review the SDS and determine if all the necessary information is present.
Nexreg can review your SDS against chemical regulations for over 23 countries. We have devised a “SDS checklist” that we will provide to you verifying if your current SDS lists the important/required information pertaining to the country’s regulations.
Nexreg can also provide a product GHS classification review. With your products full formula, we can determine the classification of your product with the most up-to-date hazard and database information and determine if our classification matches with your current SDS.
Naturally, to guarantee a compliant SDS for your product, it is recommended that Nexreg classify and author your SDSs. Our Regulatory Consultants are well-versed in a variety of regulations and will ensure that you receive an SDS that meets the GHS requirements for your required country.
