New classification PBT and vPvB

By |2023-05-25T16:03:01+02:0022 May 2023|SDB-Profi|

There are new classifications in the environmental field that provide a statement about particularly persistent substances since 20.04.2023 in the European Union: PBT and vPvB. The hazard class is called "persistent, bioaccumulative and toxic properties or very persistent and very bioaccumulative properties", or in short: PBT and vPvB properties. To some readers, these two

New classification endocrine disruption (environment)

By |2023-05-19T16:34:03+02:008 May 2023|SDB-Profi|

Endocrine disruption, i.e. the new classification of hormone-like substances, distinguishes between the disruption for the environment and for human health. In this article, I describe the classification for the effect on the environment. Where can the classification for the effect on the environment be found? The classification can be found in the CLP Regulation,

New classification endocrine disruption (human health)

By |2023-05-19T16:34:22+02:0024 April 2023|SDB-Profi|

Just after the specification of endocrine disruptors in safety data sheets (article currently only available in German) under REACH, new classifications were presented in the CLP Regulation. In this article, I summarise the classification for the effect on human health and how it fits into the safety data sheet. Where can the new classifications

CLP Regulation: New classifications are here!

By |2023-04-13T14:32:21+02:0010 April 2023|SDB-Profi|

Preliminary versions of the CLP Regulation have been available for some time, and since 31 March 2023 it is official: new classifications are coming in Europe [1]. We will go through the most important key data in this blog post. What new classifications are being added? These classifications are new: Endocrine disruption to human health

New SDS in 2023

By |2022-08-26T17:48:17+02:0026 August 2022|GefStoff-Profi, SDB-Profi|

Some people working with SDSs may not have noticed it yet, but we are currently in the transition period to a new SDS format. For the second time, Annex II of the REACH Regulation [1] has been amended. This directly changes the requirements for a safety data sheet. I will describe the results of

What ist the meaning behind product identifiers?

By |2022-06-17T14:47:08+02:007 June 2022|SDB-Profi|

Product identifiers can be found in every safety data sheet - you can' t do without them. But do you know what is actually hidden behind this term? Quite a few legal cross-references in any case. What are product identifiers? The CLP Regulation refers to all information that enables the identification of a substance

Software support for SDS and PCN for distributors of hazardous substances

By |2022-05-12T11:40:12+02:009 May 2022|PCN, SDB-Profi|

The challenges for distributors of hazardous substances under REACH in the European Union are mostly not apparent through direct obligations. For example, in contrast to the manufacturer/importer, a distributor does not have to meet certain requirements (like compiling a safety data sheet). Still, distributors have to ensure indirectly that the products they distribute are

PCN and SDS creation go hand in hand

By |2022-05-12T12:11:01+02:0025 April 2022|SDB-Profi, PCN|

Both the European Product Notification (PCN) and the Safety Data Sheet (SDS) provide information on hazards of dangerous substances. But they do this with different objectives. Nevertheless, there are many similarities, which is why the PCN and SDS creation work well together. They even have to be identical in some aspects. Aim of the

What does the expertise for safety data sheets include?

By |2022-04-13T15:05:27+02:0013 April 2022|SDB-Profi|

The preparation of safety data sheets (SDS) requires expertise in safety data sheets. This is completely independent of the method and software used to create the SDS. But what does this expertise mean and who needs it at all? The law is very general here, but there are sources with more detailed information about

The contents of the REACH Regulation for safety data sheet creators

By |2022-04-14T10:34:59+02:0012 April 2022|SDB-Profi|

Anyone involved in the preparation of safety data sheets cannot avoid the REACH Regulation [1]. Although the REACH Regulation is mainly relevant for manufacturers or importers of pure substances, it also contains important content for manufacturers of mixtures. The REACH Regulation consists mainly of annexes. In today's blog post, I would like to tell
