Compliance with Local Regulations
We can convert your MSDS to comply with the GHS format, which is becoming the worldwide standard used in Europe, Canada and the USA. We also translate MSDS to comply with the EU format, with the WHMIS (Canadian) format and with most other country standards. In the United States, the U.S. Government’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is responsible for the regulation of MSDS; MSDS should comply with the OSHA Hazard Communication Standard, 29 CFR1910.1200 . The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has developed the ANSI Z400.1 for MSDS and ANSI Z129.1 for labeling. Additional state and local regulations may apply in the United States.
In Canada, both the product labels and MSDS must be available in both English and French Canadian. The chemical safety labels must have both the English and French on the same label. The applicable standard in Canada is the Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS). Click here to read more about the WHMIS requirements on the Health Canada website.
In Europe, Directive 2001/58/EC provides detailed guidance for the preparation of material safety data sheets.
Countries in Asia have their own MSDS standards. Examples include JIS 27250 in Japan and GB 16483-2000 in China.
MSDS regulations in many countries are evolving to enable globalization of standards. When translating chemical products to various languages, we try to meet the standards of all countries that each language is spoken in, in order to maximize your investment in translation services.
