Safety Data Sheet (SDS) Services for CLP Regulation Compliance

Intertek offers its customers end-to-end solutions for authoring and updating safety data sheets for CLP Regulation compliance.

The European Union’s CLP Regulation (EC No 1272/2008) came into force on January 20, 2009 and concerns the classification, labelling and packaging of substances and mixtures. The CLP Regulation incorporates the United Nations' Globally Harmonized System (GHS) of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals criteria and also compliments the EU REACH Regulation.

The EU CLP Regulation requirements for safety data sheets are being phased in:

  • December 1, 2010: Safety data sheets (SDS) for substances must use the first revision to REACH Annex II after this date. Safety data sheets for new mixtures must use the first revision to REACH Annex II after this date.
  • December 1, 2012: Safety data sheets (SDS) for all mixtures must use the first revision to REACH Annex II. The SDS for substances that are 'on the shelf' must be re-issued with one in accordance with the first revision of Annex II.
  • June 1, 2015: Safety data sheets (SDS) for all substances and mixtures must use the second revision to REACH Annex II
  • June 1, 2017: Safety data sheets (SDS) for mixtures 'on the shelf' must be re-issued with one in accordance with the second revision of Annex II. 

Manufacturers, importers, distributors, and downstream users must make sure their current and future safety data sheets for substances, preparations, and mixtures comply with the CLP Regulation and REACH Regulation (1907/2006/EC) SDS requirements to keep their products on the EU market.
