Regulation amending the REACH Annexes relevant for SDS (Safety Data Sheet)

SDSs are an important element of hazard communication and provide a mechanism for transmitting safety information on classified substances and mixtures, and certain non-classified substances and mixtures, including information from the relevant chemical safety report(s) down the supply chain to the immediate downstream user(s).

The Commission has adopted a Regulation amending the REACH Annexes relevant for SDS – Annex II and, to a lesser extent, Annex VI. The revision brings the SDS requirements into line with the Regulation on Classification, Labelling and Packaging (Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008) and with the guidance on the preparation of SDSs as laid down in the Globally Harmonised System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS) of the United Nations.

Commission Regulation EU No 453/2010 of 20 May 2010
