ECHA, the European Chemicals Agency, has published a new e-guide to completing Safety Data Sheets (SDSs).
The guide is a significantly more comprehensive publication than any that has gone previously, enabling users to get more depth where they may require it, as well as giving numerous examples to illustrate key points.
The guide also makes clear the chemical and physico-chemical properties which need to be understood – and in many cases obtained by measurement – and entered onto the SDS. This illustrates nicely the need for accurate measurements to be made in order to properly describe a substance and its properties, necessary for the proper completion of an SDS.
