National emergency numbers
In section 1.4 of the safety data sheet, an emergency telephone number must be given, which can provide medical information in the event of accidents with the substance or the mixture. The German Poison Information Centres offer this service. Before using the emergency number of a Poison Information Centre, a relevant contract must be concluded with the poison control centre. KFT has concluded a framework agreement with the National Poison Information Centre North in Göttingen. Under this agreement, our customers can use the emergency number of the Poison Information Centre North in the German safety data sheets. To do so, the relevant current, complete and compliant safety data sheet must be sent to the National Poison Information Centre, so that expert information can be given in the event of a call about the relevant substance or mixture. KFT handles the registration and the provision of safety data sheets for your business and, in the event of updates, exchanges the old SDS for the new version.
If your company has already signed an agreement with another poison information centre, we will naturally send the safety data sheets for your company to this poison information centre.
International emergency number
According to section 1.4 of the safety data sheet, an emergency number must be given which can provide medical information in the event of accidents with the substance or the mixture. The emergency number must refer to an information centre that can offer specialised medical care in the local language. In the medium term, an appropriate body will be created for the European Community in each Member State. In the transition phase, the corresponding national poison emergency call centres are to be used. KFT determines the respective national bodies and inserts the contact details into the SDS.
For deliveries to other countries outside the European Community, there is often a legal requirement for the corresponding emergency numbers to be indicated for transport in the transport documents or for handling in the safety data sheet or on the label. KFT works together with various service providers worldwide that provide these emergency numbers for the respective purposes. We can thus provide you with support with the one-off deliveries of your product or for an unlimited number of deliveries for your entire company.
