Time is over: the new SDS requirements under Annex II will be mandatory for the next year

Regulation (EU) 2020/878, which modifies Annex II of the REACH Regulation and establishes new requirements for the safety data sheets of chemical products in the European Union, has been in effect for the last two years. It came into force on January 1, 2021, and since then there are many of you who are already making changes required by the new regulations in your SDS , which include:

  • Specific requirements related to nanoforms, whose information must be included in the SDS
  • Introduction of the Unique Formula Identifier or UFI Code when not mentioned on the label (Section 1.1.)
  • Endocrine disrupting properties (Sections 2.3, 11 and 12)
  • Reference to specific concentration limits (SCL), M-factors and acute toxicity estimate (ATE) (Section 3.1. or 3.2.)
  • Extension of section 9: Physical and chemical properties

As you well know, the introduction of these new information represents a significant additional effort for companies, which in many cases must update hundreds of safety data sheets. For this reason, a transition period was established to make it easier for the chemical products industry to adapt to the new regulations; a period that ends on December 31, 2022, just three from now.

We have already pointed out that, according to our own experience, many of our clients have already taken the step of carrying out the SDS according to the new regulation in the last two years, but we are also aware that there are many companies that are rushing time and are approaching to the deadline without having updated their SDS. If this is your case, we strongly recommend you to start the update process immediately, and we put at your disposal our CHEMETER software that will facilitate the transition by automatically carrying out the SDS according to the new regulations and thus complying with the next deadline.
