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

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.

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

Curious classification: Skin Corr. 1 or Eye Dam. 1

By |2021-03-24T09:14:36+01:0024 March 2021|SDB-Profi|

Why is a mixture classified as “Skin Corr. 1” (Corrosivity to the skin, category 1) despite the fact that no individual component shares this classification?

How is the "acute toxicity" classification determined? The reason for this blog entry was a question from a user of the SDBcheck® online tool on the topic of acute toxicity: "How does the classification Acute Tox. 2 with H330 result, even though none of the individual components is also classified as "Acute Tox."?

If you produce hazardous substances or mixtures, you also have to create safety data sheets (SDS). But who is actually allowed to create these safety data sheets?

Substances and mixtures in safety data sheets (SDS)

By |2021-03-22T11:14:07+01:001 February 2021|SDB-Profi|

What is the difference between substances and mixtures in safety data sheets? This question is harder to answer than it might seem at first glance. In some substance safety data sheets (SDS), Section 3 lists multiple ingredients (also called "components" in the law). On the other hand, some mixture safety data sheets only specify
