Safety Data Sheet Best Practice Recommendations

The SDS best practice recommendations address phrases and data formats in sections of a component SDS that commonly create issues for formulators in developing a finished lubricant SDS for passing down the supply chain.

They are designed to ensure that formulators receive a complete picture of the respective hazards of individual components via the SDS and so avoid the need for additional data requests.

The SDS guidance highlights where additional detail is required (or would be helpful) to develop a complete and comprehensive SDS, explains why this information is needed and provides recommendations for how to incorporate the information into the component SDS.
