Safety Data Sheet (SDS) Services

Safety Data Sheet (SDS) Authoring and Writing Services

If you supply hazardous chemicals or your products have hazardous ingredients you are legally required to provide safety data sheets (SDS).

All safety data sheets (SDS) in the EU must comply with the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and restriction of Chemicals (REACH) Regulation and Classification, Labelling and Packaging of Substances and Mixtures (CLP) Regulation. The UK also has it’s own UK REACH and GB CLP legislation that will come into force from January 2021 that will run independently from the EU regulations.

Many businesses don’t realise that the format and information required in the safety data sheets is changing all the time and that they must ensure their existing safety data sheets are kept up to date.

With our extensive experience of chemical classification, you can be sure of the correct information given in the right format for your customers.

We also have competent safety data sheet writers with multi-lingual expertise so you can have your safety data sheets (SDS) provided in other languages.

A Safety Data Sheet (SDS) provides information on products to help users to handle them safely. It describes the hazards the product presents, and gives information on handling, storage, disposal, transport and emergency measures in case of an accident.

Remember – a safety data sheet is NOT a risk assessment or a COSHH (Control of Substances Hazardous to Health) assessment.

It is a legal requirement under the REACH Regulations for suppliers of chemicals to provide an up to date safety data sheet if a product is dangerous e.g. if the product is corrosive (causes burns); is irritating to skin and eyes; is flammable or dangerous for the environment etc.

As a supplier, you need to provide a REACH compliant safety data sheet before, or at the time of the first delivery of the product, in either paper or electronic format, in the following cases:

  • A substance or mixture classified as hazardous according to the CLP Regulation.
  • A substance that is persistent, bioaccumulative and toxic (PBT) or very persistent and very bioaccumulative (vPvB), as defined in REACH (Annex XIII), or
  • A substance is included in the European Chemicals Agency’s (ECHA) ‘Candidate List’ of substances of very high concern (SVHC) i.e. substances that have hazards with serious consequences for human health or the environment e.g. they have the potential to cause cancer, or they remain in the environment for a long time with their amounts in animals gradually building up.

Some mixtures, which do not meet the criteria for classification as dangerous or hazardous, also require a safety data sheet e.g. non-classified mixtures that contains certain hazardous substances in concentrations above or equal to specified values.

Certain situations require the update and re-issue of the safety data sheet:

  • As soon as new hazard information or other information that may affect any risk management measures becomes available;
  • Once an authorisation under REACH has been granted or refused;
  • Once a restriction under REACH has been imposed.

Suppliers have to provide updated safety data sheets (free of charge) for all the former recipients that they have supplied the substance or mixture to within the preceding 12 months.
