Safety data sheet preparation

Safety Data Sheets (SDSs) in the standard 16 section format are a well-accepted and effective method for the communication of workplace health and safety information to users of chemical substances and mixtures.  



SDSs form an integral part of the EU REACH Regulation and must be provided to customers where the:

  • substance or mixture meets the criteria for classification as hazardous according to the Classification, Labelling and Packaging (CLP) Regulation, or;
  • substance is persistent, bioaccumulative and toxic (PBT) or very persistent and very bioaccumulative (vPvB), or;
  • substance is included in the candidate list for eventual authorisation. 

Even in situations where these specific criteria are not met, the provision of an SDS to downstream users is recommended as a measure of good practice to ensure safe handling, use and disposal.

Where a chemical safety assessment has been carried out for a substance under REACH, relevant exposure scenarios describing how the substance can be safely handled to control exposures should be included as an annex to the SDS forming an Extended Safety Data Sheet (e-SDS). 

We can help you to effectively communicate potential risks to downstream users of your products and support safety in the supply chain, including:

  • Preparation of informative, REACH compliant (e-)SDS for substances and mixtures;
  • Hazard classification and labelling of substances and mixtures in accordance with CLP;
  • Identification and development of  exposure scenarios;
  • Critical review and appraisal of information to fill data gaps.
