Safety Data Sheets
Safety Data Sheets (SDS) communicate information on properties and hazards of substances and mixtures, recommendations for safe handling and use, requirements for storage and transport, and measures for first aid, accidental releases, exposure control and personal protection.
The format of the SDS, as well as product classification and labelling, follow the United Nations Globally Harmonized System (GHS) and are in accordance with applicable laws.
Name change from Material Safety Data Sheet
The implementation of GHS led to the general change from Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) to SDS.
Technical Data Sheets
Technical Data Sheets (TDS) provide information on the main applications or areas of use of the substance or product, the physicochemical properties and general advice on health, safety and environment impact.
