Safety Data Sheets (SDS)
What is a Safety Data Sheet (SDS)?
An SDS is a document that has a specific 16-section format in alignment with the UN's Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS) that the manufacturer, importer, or distributer of a chemicals product is required to provide to users. An SDS provides information so that users who handle the chemical have the hazard information to safely use, handle and store the product.
