Aspects of GHS SDS On the face of it, compliance with GHS norms seems straightforward. For those not yet initiated in it, implementing the GHS norms could be very involving. A GHS spreadsheet is prepared when formulations or chemicals are determined to be risky according to various classes.

If a chemical falls into the acute class of toxicity with a concentration limit of 1%, then it becomes important to record it properly on the GHS SDS. The cutoff point for carcinogenic and those chemicals that affect the reproductive system is 0.1% The GHS SDS forms all have a standardized structure beginning with identification, first aid measures, exposure control as well as stability that has to be complied with. If it is just one chemical, it is easy to decide. The task may however become very complicated if it is a formulation and one may need the help of a professional to help them out. Preparation of the safety data sheet involves the inclusion of minimum information as regards GHS product identifier, use of the chemical and restrictions along with hazard classification. You may find manufacturers hesitating to share their chemical compositions but it is a requirement by law that has to be met and they should involve experts in this field while doing this.
