USA - Finally a member of the GHS Family
The United States of America have adopted GHS. In accordance with the HCS - 2012 (Hazardous Communication Standard) some elements of the GHS have been included in this standard. Environmental risks, however, have been completely ignored. The classification on the basis of these hazards and the compilation of the safety data sheet with this information, however, is tolerated. Many other elements and contents have been taken over unchanged in some parts, whilst US-specific extensions have been implemented in other parts. Additional hazard classes that deviate from the European CLP Regulation have also been introduced. This means that compiling a U.S. safety data sheet has become easier, even though a direct adoption of the European EU REACH safety data sheet is not possible. All safety data sheets in the USA have until 01 June 2015 to adjust to the new standard. A compilation based on the new legislation is already possible.
KFT Chemieservice can compile the USA safety data sheets in accordance with the new law in different languages (English, French, Spanish) on your behalf. An update of the existing TSCA safety data sheets in the new standard is also possible.
