The process of complying with GHS is a straight forward process. The practical implementation and compliance can be an involved task no matter how complex it is. In case a chemical formulation is found to be hazardous the GHS safety data sheets will have to be prepared. It is the role of every manufacturer, dealer, importer or exporter to prepare the GHS safety data sheet in case the chemical matches cut off value for various hazard classes. Taking an example, chemicals falling into the acute toxicity class having a concentration limit of 1% or more must have an appropriate GHS SDS. If the product have a chemical component known as carcinogenic or it is known to affect the reproductive system the cut off should be less than 0.1% . The component should be standardized it will require a compliance with each of the 16 sections. Among the 16 sections are identification, composition, the first-aid measures, fire-fighting, accidental release, handling, exposure control stability among others. If the preparation of GHS SDS involves one chemical then it is easy to decide.
During the preparation process of the GHS SDS you have to include the minimum information as per the GHS product identifier. Most of the manufacturers hesitates when it comes to the identification of the ingredients and chemical formulations of their products. There should a prerequisite that should be used when giving out the right information of a product without exposing its confidentiality. This is an area where the expertise of the experienced professionals comes in hand. It is important to note that the content should be given in a language that is understood by everyone to avoid misunderstanding. During the safety data sheet preparation, professionals know the problems cause by the language and they know how to use a clear language as a way of giving clear information. The language should be made clear despite the geographic location and the language usage in different countries. In case a country does not use English the language have to be translated during for the SDS to be understood. The language translation is another reason why you should hire professional GHS Safety Data Sheet.
Currently, not all the countries have adopted the GHS safety data sheet. It is not a must nor compulsory for a country to follow these set of recommendations. You will have some countries having additional norms like the EU. In the US, GHS comes the domain of OSHA and EPA. Ensure that you have hired professionals to prepare the GHS Safety data sheets is the safest and the surest way to ensure there is full compliance.
