Arcerion provides the creation of material safety data sheets (MSDS) compliant to art. 31 of regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 (REACH). MSDS are the main tool for ensuring that suppliers communicate enough information along the supply chain to allow safe use of their substances and mixtures. Safety data sheets include information about the properties of the substance (or mixture), its hazards and instructions for handling, disposal and transport and also first-aid, fire-fighting and exposure control measures. This information can be found in the main body of the safety data sheet or in the annexed exposure scenarios (where applicable). The requirements for the compilation of the safety data sheets are specified in Annex II of REACH. A supplier needs to provide a safety data sheet in the following cases:
- a substance or mixture classified as hazardous according to CLP.
- a substance that is persistent, bioaccumulative and toxic (PBT) or very persistent and very bioaccumulative (vPvB), as defined in REACH (Annex XIII), or
- a substance is included in the candidate list of substances of very high concern.
