SAFETY DATA SHEET
Safety Data Sheet contains a description of risks that could cause specific chemical substance or mixture, as well as basic physico-chemical data. Its primary purpose is to inform users of the potential hazards resulting from contact with substances or mixtures.
SDS tells the recipient about prevention methods and procedures to be taken in the event of an emergency. Safety Data Sheet (SDS) is a document in trading chemical products on the market.
It is an important element in the supply chain between the manufacturer – supplier – a downstream user.
Safety Data Sheet (SDS) is developed on the basis of Regulation EC No 1907/2006 REACH , paragraph 31, Annex II, which was amended by Regulation EC no. 878/2020.
Classification of substances and mixtures
- Classification of substances and mixtures according to Regulation (EC) n°1272/2008
Authoring of Safety Data Sheets compliant with the REACH & CLP regulations
- Generation of 16 points Safety Data Sheets compliant with REACH and CLP and their most recent amendments
- Flexible format allowing to insert specific safety precautions recommended by the manufacturer of the product
- Inclusion of experimental testing results to justify adapted classification
Safety Data Sheet - offer
SDS for producers :
Safety data sheet together with the classification and labeling are done from scratch based on the data provided the following :
- SDS components (initial data)
- Product application
- Determination of the system of classification and labeling: CLP
- Outcome results of physical, chemical, toxicological and eco-toxicological properties.
- Determination of special circumstances (other available data).
SDS for importers and distributors:
SDS are compiling on the basis of the supplied original and current SDSs from the manufacturer / supplier.
Safety Data Sheet should be compiled and issued in Polish language with appropriate verification of classification in accordance with applicable law, supplement the necessary data, eliminating unnecessary information and strict adaptation to the requirements of EU law and national law.
SDS for hazardous waste.
We classify product hazards based on:
- Detailed information about components,
- Classification of hazardous components,
- Technological process,
- Special conditions.
UPDATE OF SAFETY DATA SHEETS (SDS) - offer
Update of Safety data sheet is required in connection with changes in the law concerning chemical products supplier in accordance with Art. 31 paragraph 9 of REACH Regulation.
Suppliers shall update the Safety data sheet without delay in cases as soon as new information appear and may affect on the risk management measures, or new information on hazards.
We update the SDS of chemical substances and preparations due to:
- changes in the product composition,
- technological changes,
- legal changes, including those which alter the classification principles (based on: European Commision regulations)
Collection of data:
- Current inventory of SDS
- Composition Data
- Physico-chemical information
Safety Data Sheet should be updated in accordance with the law regulations which have been made since the date of the last update. The update is performed on the basis of the latest safety data sheets of the manufacturer / supplier.
All required changes to the documentation will be based on the new rules of classification and labelling, compliant with the Regulation CLP (WE) 1272/2008.
SAFETY DATA SHEETS (SDS) IN FOREIGN LANGUAGES - offer
In accordance with Regulation EC No 1907/2006 REACH, paragraph 31, safety data sheet should be provided in the official languages of the Member States where the substance or mixture is placed on the market.
Suppliers of chemical products to other EU member states are obliged to provide safety data sheets and labels in the language of the recipient.
Ekos offers the possibility of translating documentation and texts of chemical substances in the languages of the EU (over 25 languages).
