Safety Data Sheets - UK Law
Safety Data Sheets are a legal requirement under the UK REACH (registration, evaluation, authorisation and restriction of chemicals) Regulation. A supplier of chemicals must provide up-to-date Safety Data Sheets in the following circumstances:
1. The substance or mixture they are supplying is classified as hazardous under CLP Regulation and is supplied for use in the workplace (whether packaged or not),
2. The substance or mixture is not classified as hazardous but still contains small amounts of hazardous substances,
3. The substance or mixture meets the criteria of persistent or very persistent, bio-accumulative and toxic (PBT or vPvB) to the environment, in accordance with REACH Regulation, and
4. The substance or mixture appears on the UK REACH Candidate list of substances of very high concern (SVHCs) for authorisation.
Safety Data Sheets are important in helping to identify hazardous substances in the workplace.
Both suppliers and commercial recipients of chemicals can help to safeguard one another and the environment:
As a supplier of any substance or mixture meeting the above criteria, it is essential that your Safety Data Sheets be produced accurately and fully, to meet your obligation under UK law, and to protect your customers,
As a commercial recipient of any substance or mixture meeting the above criteria, it is important that you feel confident the Safety Data Sheets supplied with purchased substances are accurate, and that your teams are equipped to handle chemicals safely.
