Chemical Safety Data Sheet (Material Safety Data Sheet)MSDS- this an international document that is a mandatory part of the technical documentation for chemical products (substance, mixture, material, industrial waste) and is intended to provide consumers with reliable information on the safety of industrial use, storage, transportation and disposal of chemical products, as well as its use for domestic purposes. The MSDS name was used until 2017, but is currently considered obsolete. Currently, the abbreviation is used in regulatory documents of various countries, including the USASDS(Safety Data Sheet).
The safety data sheet is developed for products used in everyday life or industry and necessarily contains information that is necessary to ensure the safety of people's lives and the safety of health, property and the environment.
The presence of the document is necessary for cargo transportation, customs clearance and when obtaining other permits.
The safety data sheet of chemical products contains information:
The production of a safety data sheet is the responsibility of the manufacturer, so several documents can be found for the same substanceSDS(MSDS).
They may differ in volume and detail, but in points related to safety, semantic differences, as a rule, are not very significant.
The safety data sheet contains information that describes the danger of the substance, the rules for working with it and methods of neutralization.
The material safety data sheet is not a primary information source, it cannot serve as an authoritative reference of the physical and chemical characteristics of substances.

On the territory of the Russian Federation Until 1993, there were no uniform documents that would contain all the information about chemical products, about all their dangerous properties, as well as about the safe handling of them in an emergency. For this reason, information about hazardous substances was scattered, which made it difficult to access it at the right time.
In 1993, Safety Data Sheets (SDS) were introduced in the Russian Federation as a mandatory part of the technical documentation for chemical products, by analogy with the MSDS Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS). At the initiative of Gosstandart, the Ministry of Labor, the Ministry of Emergency Situations, the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Gosgortehnadzor, GOST R 50587-93 "Safety data sheet of the substance (material) was put into effect. The main provisions. Information on safety during production, application, storage, transportation, disposal", which established the basic requirements for PB.
In 1995, the interstate standard GOST 30333-95 with the same name was adopted on its basis.
01.01.2009 its revised version was put into effect –GOST 30333-2007 "Safety data sheet of chemical products. General requirements", which is still in effect at the present time. RequirementsGOST 30333The presentation form and content of the PB are harmonized with the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemical Products (GHS).
PB GOST 30333-2007 of the Russian Federation fully conforming to the GHS has the following national features:
The main task of the Chemical Product Safety Data Sheet is to inform the consumer about the use, storage, transportation and disposal of chemical products. This document is an obligatory part of the technical documentation for chemical products.
The safety data sheet should contain reliable information in an accessible and concise form, sufficient for the consumer to take the necessary measures to ensure the protection of human health and safety at work, environmental protection at all stages of the life cycle of chemical products, including its disposal in the form of waste, and should contribute to the elimination of technical barriers to trade in potentially hazardous chemical products, as it is an integral part of the UN Recommendations "Globally Harmonized System of Hazard Classification and Labelling of Chemical Products (GHS)".
One safety data sheet is issued per unit of chemical products and includes the entire branded range of these products.
However, in all the cases listed below, the issuance of separate safety data sheets is required:
Additionally, it should be noted that: medicines; minerals (in a state of occurrence); chemical products according to a closed nomenclature; food products; perfumes and cosmetics; radiating, nuclear, as well as radioactive substances – do not require a safety data sheet.
