WHY THE PERSON OR TEAM PREPARING SDS HAS TO BE COMPETENT? Picture
  • Competency – a Regulatory requirement
  • There could be penalty or fine imposed by Regulatory Authorities to you or your customers for
    • Not keeping SDS or providing a copy of SDS to your customers in compliance with the regulations of the country where the chemical material is placed. Example:
    • In US, penalty upto $12,934. per violation and if the violation is Willful and Repeated, the penalty could be upto $129,336 per violation
    • In EU, Fines up to 50,000 EUR
  • Incorrect identification  of DG status may lead to heavy fines /penalties / prosecutions imposed by shipping authorities.
  • Over  the  recent  years,  there  have  been  big  changes  in  the  MSDS/SDS content due to rapid changes in chemical regulatory framework.
  • Incorrect  information  in  SDS  may  negatively  impact  Safety  and  Safety Programs (eg., Product Stewardship) at your site or your customers’ sites.

WHY YOU NEED TO TRAINED EMPLOYEE(S)?
  • SDS is not one-off time task: Regulations demand supplying of updated Safety Data Sheet to the recipients of the chemical products. So,  it is important for you to have employees trained on SDS who can understand what information triggers update of the SDS and how to update the same.
  • Trained employees can avoid high cost, hidden cost and risk associated with Outsourcing of SDSs preparation by preparing SDS in-house or negotiating with SDS Authoring Service provider skilfully:
    • Many of SDS service providers provide SDSs in a format generated from Software. It may be difficult to update SDSs significantly in those formats, without access to software that has generated the SDS, which results in continued dependency on SDS Service provider, further leading to additional costs to your company.
    • What if your Customer has queries/complaints towards your MSDS/SDS prepared by SDS Authoring Service provider and the Service provider  is not responding to those queries/complaints? In such cases, trained employee(s) play a vital role in avoiding customer dissatisfaction.
  • If you are thinking of purchasing an SDS software or you have an SDS software for creating SDSs: You can’t fully rely on the Database of many of the software’s available in the market. To cross-check the data or identify the accuracy of the data, you need trained employee(s).
