MSDS Preparation ( Material Safety Data Sheet )

Material Safety Data Sheet

Material Safety data sheet: It refers to a document containing detailed information on the characteristics of hazardous substances and mixtures and safety measures to be taken in accordance with the characteristics of hazardous substances in the workplace with the purpose of protecting human health and environment against UNDESIRABLEe effects of hazardous substances and mixtures.

MSDS is prepared in order to provide effective control and supervision against UNDESIRABLEe effects that may be caused by hazardous substances and mixtures, which are introduced to the market, on human health and the environment.

Legal Process

The hazard classification of hazardous substances and mixtures changed with the “Regulation on Classification, Labelling and Packaging of Substances and Mixtures (SEA)” No. 28848 that was published and entered into force with the aim of complying with the EU CLP regulation on 11 December 2013.  One of the regulations, which needed to be complied with according to the principles of this regulation, and the most important was the MSDS regulation. For this purpose, a new regulation was published by the Ministry of Environment and Urbanism in the Official Gazette No. 29204 on 13 December 2014.

Pursuant to Article 11 of the “Regulation on Safety Data Sheets for Hazardous Substances and Mixtures” published in the Official Gazette No. 29204 dated 13 December 2014, the “Regulation on Preparation and Distribution of Safety Data Sheets for Hazardous Substances and Preparations” published in the Official Gazette No. 27092 and dated 26 December 2008 shall be abolished completely on 01 June 2016.

Therefore, all MSDSs prepared in accordance with the “Regulation on Preparation and Distribution of Safety Data Sheets for Hazardous Substances and Preparations” must be updated in order to be in compliance with the “Regulation on Safety Data Sheets for Hazardous Substances and Mixtures” by 01 June 2016.

With the new regulation it appears that the preparation of the MSDS is now completely left to the experts of the subject. As PIM CONSULTANCY, we will continue to present our experience to the service of manufacturers and suppliers with this new regulation as well.
