Material Safety Data Sheets


Manage all your MSDS challenges


 


As a downstream user, REACH requires that you have the Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) of chemicals products and that you check their compliance. In case of non-compliance, you must request an updated MSDS to your supplier.

We offer a three-step method:

Collection initiation

EcoMundo integrates the suppliers / manufacturers contacts into the database associated with the reference of the chemical product purchased.

Sorting MSDS

The first collection step is to sort MSDSs according to their version dates:

  • Inventory of existing MSDS
  • Sorting MSDSs by version dates: a MSDS with a version date before 2010 is likely to be non-compliant with the CLP regulation as this one was only enforced from the 1st December 2010.


Writing applications for new MSDS

To optimize the responsiveness of suppliers and the collection rate, we highlight:

  • REACH obligations
  • Penalties incurred

Reminders are conducted by phone if necessary to discuss about the non-compliance points found by EcoMundo


EcoMundo is in charge of the outsourced compliance management of your MSDS.

Product classification according to CLP Regulation

EcoMundo supports you in the development and / or control of your product's classification in accordance with CLP Regulation.

  • EcoMundo provides an automatic calculation engine for CLP classification via SDS Factory software
  • The mixture classification criteria allows you to ensure the validity of Section 2 of your SDS.

Format control

EcoMundo verify the MSDS format (2010 or 2010-I-II) and the compliance of its 16 required sections:

  • Section 1: Identification of the substances/mixture and of the company
  • Section 2 & 3: Hazard identification & composition and information on ingredients
  • Sections 4 to 8: Hazard management based on the information provided by the company and the CLP classification
  • Sections 9 to 12: Inclusion of all the necessary and available endpoints
  • Sections 13 to 16: Ecological information (2008/98/EC); Disposal consideration (2008/68/EC), Regulatory information and all additional information

Control of mixture components

EcoMundo analyses the composition of each substances of your products and calculates the new concentration (diluted) of each substances in the composition of your mixtures.

Compliance report

If requested EcoMundo provides you a compliance report for your MSDS section by section.

What are the REACH requirements for e-SDS?

REACH registration required for any hazardous substances which exceeds 10 tonnes/year to create a Chemical Safety Report (CSR)

The Exposure Scenarios of this report should be incorporated into the Annex of the Safety Data sheet to cover the uses of downstream users. It becomes an extended Safety Data Sheet, or e-MSDS

Users then have the obligation to respect the Operational Conditions (OC) and Risk Management Measures (RMM) prescribed in these exposure scenarios.

As a downstream user, you must request a review of the extended SDS from your supplier or carry out yourself a Chemical Safety Report (CSR) if your find that some of your uses are not covered

For manufacturers/importers of substance: creating the e-SDS

EcoMundo takes over for you to integrate the exposure Scenarios to your SDS assuming of the Chemical Safety Report (CSR).


Downstream users: compliance with Exposure Scenarios

Upon receiving an extended SDS, you have 12 months to check that all your uses are covered by the Trade Scenarions, and for you to comply with the described operating conditions and risk management measures.

EcoMundo accompanies you in:

  • Sorting your e-FDS
  • The analysis of your usage and if necessary via an on-site diagnosis
  • Control of your usage compared to the exposure Scenarios received coverage (OC compliance/ RMM compliance)
  • Writing a pitch for inspection, also knwon as compliance report
  • Alignment with the directive risk chemical (there is a strong link between the information available in the Unique Risk Assessment Document and data relevant to the compliance of the e-MSDS)
  • The organization and management of your e-SDS
