Specification for hazard communication for hazardous chemicals and dangerous goods – Part 3: Preparation of safety data sheets (SDSs)


This Singapore Standard sets out provisions for the preparation, review, reissue and use of an SDS. It covers the responsibility of suppliers and manufacturers of chemical substances and preparations in the compilation and completion of an SDS. Users of chemicals can make use of the information in the SDS to prevent exposure to chemicals in the workplace and community.

Pharmaceuticals, food additives, cosmetics, and pesticide residues in food are not covered by the GHS in terms of labelling at the point of intentional intake. However, these types of chemicals are covered where workers can be exposed at work, and if there is potential exposure during the transportation of chemical.
