On the face value it often seems that the preparation of the GHS Safety Data Sheets is quite simple and straightforward. Neverheless, in the reality it is a fact that the implementation and compliance can actually prove to be so demanding and involving a task more so for the uninitiated. Should you happen to be handling any kind of chemical or formulation that happens to be seen as being hazardous then the preparation of GHS SDS becomes necessary as an essential. It is incumbent on the manufacturer, dealer or importer of such chemicals to prepare the GHS Safety Data Sheets whenever the chemical matches the cut off values for the various hazard categories. Take an example of where you are dealing with those substances that have been classed as of high toxicity levels, concentration levels being 1% and above in which case you have to prepare the GHS Safety Data Sheets. Chemicals that are known to be carcinogenic and those that affect the reproductive organs the cutoff point is often not more than 0.1%. In as much as the format is standardized, there is as well the need to comply with the sections that deal with the identification, composition, first aid, handling and all the other issues that relate with these chemicals. For the case of just a single chemical, it becomes quite easy to handle. Though if the case be that a chemical is but a part of the formulation, you will realize that the classification will be a bit of a challenge and as such you will need some bit of professional and expert help so as to come up with the right classification.
You as well need to bear in mind the fact that not all countries have actually adopted the GHS SDS in the same manner. You need to note the fact that in actual sense there is no set of regulations and demands on any country to follow any given set of rules in so far as this need goes. There are even some countries especially those in the European Union that have added some extra norms. Exporters taking their products to the European market, must have complied with the requirements as have been set by the EU over and above the fact that they have complied with their home country’s GHS SDS documents. The majority of the countries have actually adopted the GHS regulations and at the same time have their own set of regulations touching on these as well. In this regard you realize that it is quite an important thing for you to consider the services of the expert professional in safety data compilation to handle the compilation of safety data that is country compliant.
