Toxicity data for the safety data sheet

Toxicity data for the safety data sheet are not the easiest topic for SDS creation. But toxicity data are not only used and referenced by experts in sections 11 and 12. They also affect the classification calculation of your own mixture. Because of that, I summarise different sources and ways to get these requested

Sensitisation in GHS / CLP

REF-6 for mixture SDS: 44% have errors

By |2021-03-05T12:13:55+01:0010 February 2020|SDB-Profi, GefStoff-Profi|

The results of the latest REACH-EN-FORCE project (REF-6) have been published and directly affect creators and users of the large majority of all safety data sheets – namely safety data sheets of hazardous substance mixtures. In comparison to the first statistics, the results look better as far as classification is concerned, but there is
