New SDS in 2023

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

Deviations that aren’t any – the solution lies in the detail

By |2022-10-31T16:42:09+01:0011 July 2022|GefStoff-Profi|

You already know our online tool SDBcheck® (Currently only available in German) for checking the plausibility of your safety data sheets from my last blog posts. Today I would like to discuss the situations in which deviations occur that are actually not deviations at all. Plausibility check with SDBcheck® SDBcheck® is a free online tool

Deviations in the safety data sheet

By |2022-08-19T08:18:21+02:0027 June 2022|GefStoff-Profi|

In my last blog post I dealt with why the plausibility check of safety data sheets is so important (and also obligatory in Germany according to TRGS 400 [1]). With our free online tool SDBcheck® (currently only available in German) you have a simple and convenient way to check classification and labelling. Ideally, you will

Plausibility check of safety data sheets

By |2022-06-17T14:31:20+02:0013 June 2022|GefStoff-Profi|

According to the German TRGS 400 [1], you as the recipient of safety data sheets are obliged to check it for "obviously incomplete, contradictory or incorrect information". If you find a discrepancy during the plausibility check, you should contact the supplier and request a correct safety data sheet. Plausibility check Both as a producer of

Software support for SDS and PCN for distributors of hazardous substances

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

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

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

Designation in dangerous goods

By |2022-03-22T08:50:48+01:0014 March 2022|GefStoff-Profi, SDB-Profi|

Did you ever notice that there are differences in the designation of dangerous goods? Users and formulators of safety data sheets come into contact with the dangerous goods in section 14 of the safety data sheet. Even with pure substances, but also with mixtures, there is often a different wording in section 14 than

Determine Storage Classes with Safety Data Sheets

By |2021-04-28T12:52:05+02:0028 April 2021|GefStoff-Profi|

To mark the occasion of TRGS 510 updated in February, I will take a look at storage classes and how you can find out about them with the help of the safety data sheet. The storage class of a hazardous substance according to TRGS 510 is a good way to determine storage conditions and

Reading Safety Data Sheets

By |2021-04-21T12:40:29+02:0021 April 2021|GefStoff-Profi|

Background and motivation When compiling a hazardous substances index, you generally take the data obtained for this purpose from the associated safety data sheets. These are without doubt the main source of information, especially when mixtures are involved. [1] Based on the data of the safety data sheet, you can derive the required operating
