The deadline for the transition from Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) to the new Safety Data Sheet (SDS) format appointed by OSHA, is here. In an effort to prepare companies, Deborah Grant narrows it down in the article, “7 Key Questions to Ask Before the 2015 GHS Deadline”, published on manufacturing.net.

“From raw materials to finished goods delivery, companies are facing more complexity in chemical labeling with risk of heavy penalties for non-compliance. Companies need to access multiple data systems and SDS applications, include 6 HCS elements, fill in all pictograms, fulfill regional regulatory requirements, include customer requirements, multiple languages and more.”

In the article, Grant refers to finding a solution to handle the transition process, but what is not addressed is one of the most significant issues: replacing the old MSDS format with the new SDS format.
