Update of safety data sheet
Suppliers must update SDS without delay in the following cases:
- as soon as possible after they become aware of new information regarding risk management measures or the dangers,
- subsequently immediately after the grant or refusal of approval,
- and immediately after the restrictions.
The new version, identified as “Revision: (date)” is provided free of charge in printed or electronic form to all former recipients who were given the version for the previous 12 months but within 5 days after the upgrade. Any update following the registration of substances must include the registration number.
Ensuring Confidentiality of REACH Registration Numbers in SDS
As a result discussion resulted in concerns that the use of the full REACH registration number of the substance in the SDS could endanger the confidentiality of commercial information. One proposed solution to this problem is that the downstream users and distributors will be provided so that the number is omitted the last four digits of the registration number of the SDS.This would become a producer or importer of an unidentified, but under certain circumstances will have to be available for extended SDS, indicating the manufacturer or importer and the demand of the executive branch. Above all full registration number must be provided to customers in the first instance (the manufacturer and the importer must provide the full registration number).
