REACH Safety Data Sheets (SDS) is the main hazard communication tool in the supply chain of substances and mixtures. It is regulated by REACH regulation and CLP regulation. We prepare EU Safety Data Sheets (SDS) according to the latest requirements of REACH and CLP, and translate them into different languages according to your needs.
If you supply chemicals to your downstream users in the EU and you are interested in finding out how to comply with the EU chemical legislation so that your business will not be interrupted, please contact us to know your obligations.
