In the US as per, OSHA (Occupational Safety & Health Administration) the Hazard Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) requires chemical manufacturer, distributors, or importers to provide Safety Data Sheets (SDSs) (formerly MSDSs or Material Safety Data Sheets) for each hazardous chemical to downstream users to communicate information on these hazards.
Enventure’s team of Compliance Analysts assist businesses across various industry verticals improve their internal efficiency in managing Safety Data Sheets. Enventure’s services cover a broad spectrum, right from authoring to indexing, as well as maintaining and updating the SDS on an ongoing basis. There is a significant effort on companies to manage SDS, which is simplified by Enventure by providing services to compile, analyze, organize and adapt the documents to required specifications.
Our team does a fool proof hazard evaluation to ensure compliance for health and safety regulations. This involves creating new and updating existing Safety Data Sheets to REACH (Regulation 2006/1907/EC), CLP (Regulation 2008/1272/EC), Globally Harmonized System (GHS), and U.S. Occupational Safety & Health Administration’s (OSHA) Hazard Communication Standards.
All Safety Data Sheets placed in the market after June 1, 2015 should adhere to the new SDS format, which means that chemicals which were available in the market before June 1, 2015 should be converted to the new SDS format before June 1, 2017. Enventure provides services to manage this transition for companies, so as to make the process quick and efficient.
