Full Course Overview

This one day course will provide you with a comprehensive understanding of the requirements that must be considered when authoring and reviewing REACH Annex II compliant SDSs. 

Companies placing chemical products on the market have a responsibility to supply their customers with compliant SDSs, as a means of communicating important hazard information and advice on safety precautions, and ensuring the safe handling, storageuse and disposal of products. This can be a complicated task requiring knowledge in a variety of technical areas, and despite the SDS being a well-recognised and important document, there are many common compliance issues. 

This course involves a detailed study of the SDS according to REACH Annex II, relating to the preparation and provision of SDSs. It adopts an interactive approach of examples and extra information supporting the SDS authoring process which will enhance your skills and improve the quality of your SDSs.

The adoption of some basic quick checks will help you achieve a higher level of compliance, satisfying the expectations of the Member State Competent Authorities.  

Once equipped with this knowledge and application, both you and your company will be able to approach chemical regulatory compliance with clarity and confidence.
