Safety data sheet

Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) it an international document that is a mandatory part of technical documentation for chemical products (substance, mixture, material, industrial waste) and is intended to provide the consumer with reliable information on the safety of industrial use, storage, transportation and disposal of chemical products, as well as its use for domestic purposes ...

Material Safety Data Sheet is designed for products used in the home or industry and must contain the information necessary to ensure the safety of human life and health safety, property and the environment.

A document required for transportation, customs clearance and receipt of other permits.

The safety data sheet for chemical products contains information:

  • the physical characteristics (melting point, boiling point, flash point, etc.);
  • toxicity;
  • the impact on health;
  • on how to provide first aid;
  • chemical activity;
  • about storage conditions;
  • on the processing conditions;
  • about the use of protective equipment and special equipment;
  • the methods of disposal.

The production of a safety data sheet for chemical products is the responsibility of the company that produces this chemical product, therefore, several documents can be found for the same substance MSDS.
They may vary in volume, detail - but in areas relating to safety, the semantic differences are usually not very significant.

Safety Certificate material contains reliable information in the part, which describes the risk of the substance, the rules of work with them, techniques of neutralization.

material security certificate is not the primary source of information; it can not serve as the authoritative directory of physical and chemical characteristics of the substances. In this part, it should be considered only as a reference.

On the territory of the Russian Federation Until the year 1993, there were no unified documents containing all information about chemical products, all its hazardous properties, as well as the safe handling of it in an emergency.
For this reason, information on hazardous substances was disparate, which made it difficult to access it at the right time.

In 1993, Safety Data Sheets (SDS) were introduced in the Russian Federation as a mandatory part of technical documentation for chemical products, by analogy with MSDS Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS). On the initiative of Gosstandart, the Ministry of Labor, the Ministry of Emergency Situations, the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the Gosgortekhnadzor, GOST R 50587-93 “Material safety data sheet. Basic provisions. Information on safety assurance during production, use, storage, transportation, disposal ”, which established the basic requirements for industrial safety.

In 1995, on its basis, the interstate standard GOST 30333-95 with the same name was adopted.

In 2007-2009 Developed and implemented its revised version - GOST 30333-2007 "Safety data sheet of chemical products. General requirements", Which is still in effect. Requirements GOST 30333 to the presentation and content of the SDS are harmonized with the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemical Products (GHS). 

The PB RF fully complies with the GHS has the following national characteristics:

- the title page of the established sample containing all the basic information about the hazardous properties of the product;

- a list of the information sources used, with the help of which the SD is compiled: while checking the origin of that or information;

- examination of the PB for compliance with international and national requirements and subsequent registration in the Information and Analytical Center "Safety of Substances and Materials".

The main task of the chemical safety passport is to inform the consumer about the use, storage, transportation and utilization of chemical products, this document is an obligatory part of the technical documentation for chemical products

The safety data sheet should contain reliable and reliable information, presented in an accessible and concise form, sufficient for the consumer to take the necessary measures to protect people's health and safety in the workplace, protect the environment at all stages of the life cycle of chemical products, including its disposal in the form of waste and must To eliminate the technical barriers to trade in potentially hazardous chemicals, as it is an integral part of the UN Recommendations "Agreed at the global smoother System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS). "

One safety data sheet is issued per unit of chemical products and includes the entire brand assortment of these products.
However, in all the cases listed below, the issuance of separate safety data sheets is required:
- brands of products vary in their aggregate state
- brands require different approvals
- brands of products differ from each other in composition, or dangerous properties
- the products are produced according to various regulatory documents.
In addition, it should be noted that: drugs; Minerals (in a state of occurrence); Chemical products by closed nomenclature; Food products; Perfumery and cosmetic products; Radiant, nuclear, as well as radioactive substances - do not require the issuance of a safety data sheet.
