Safety Data Sheets (SDS) are documents required for specific products by United States Federal Law 29 CFR 1910.1200.
According to federal law, chemical manufacturers, importers or distributors must provide a SDS for each hazardous chemical to downstream users to communicate information on the hazards. All of the information on the SDS must be in English and available to employees working with or near the hazardous chemical. This law also requires United States employers to have SDS in the workplace for each chemical that they use. The SDS explains the hazards associated with the product, as well as what precautions to take to avoid those hazards. For more information on the SDS requirements, view Quick Tips #250: Safety Data Sheets under GHS.
