South Korea: Violations of SDS Regulations

Safety data sheets (SDS) were out of compliance with the law in about 44% of the companies examined during an annual inspection. In total, the inspectors examined the 220 companies to determine whether and to what extent they comply with the requirements of the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA). They uncovered 223 violations.

The violation related primarily to missing warning signs and labeling on containers and packaging (21% of the companies). Companies also frequently failed to provide training on SDS (14% of establishments).

The South Korean Ministry of Employment and Labor (MoEL) took legal action against the companies concerned and imposed fines and warnings.
