Are you aware of the new requirements for safety data sheets in 2023?

SDB 2023

As of January 1st, 2023, you will need to comply with new requirements on what you should be including in safety data sheets. Below we will walk you through the changes. 

On January 1st, 2021, the requirements regarding the information in safety data sheets were changed. During the transition period, it has been voluntary to update existing safety data sheets as well as safety data sheets for new products.

The transition period ends on December 31st this year, which means you really should familiarize yourself with the new requirements if you have not done so yet

The 5 most important changes to REACH Annex II:

  1. Information about the substance’s nanoforms must be found in several sections of the safety data sheet, as well as information about how these should be handled in a safe manner.
  2. New requirements regarding information in section 9 for physical and chemical properties.
  3. UFI codes for certain mixtures shall be given in section 1.1.
  4. Sections 11 and 12 (Toxicological and Ecological information) now have specific requirements for information regarding endocrine disrupting properties.
  5. Changes in section 3 regarding requirements for information on specific concentration limits, multiplication factors and acute toxicity estimates, if available.
