MSDS Availability for Chemical Manufacturers




By Kingston Amadan

Material Safety Data Sheets are an important part of the chemical manufacturing business, not only from a safety standpoint, but from a regulatory standpoint as well. Chemical manufacturers must make Material Safety Data Sheets available for all clients and products when applicable. In order to provide the proper documentation and labeling, chemical manufacturers must rely on MSDS generating software. In addition to Material Safety Data Sheets, there are several other documentation protocols which must be considered. These are usually covered by most MSDS generating software applications, although not always.

Most MSDS generating software is sold as part of a wider process manufacturing software application. Process manufacturing software is a necessary component of any process-based manufacturing operation such as food production, paint and stain production and of course, chemical production. The primary function of MSDS generating software is to determine and provide accurate labels for chemicals and chemical compounds that meet the safety requirements of those purchasing the chemicals and the regulatory requirements of the various pertinent regulatory agencies and Federal acts that are placed under the jurisdiction of the Environmental Protection Agency. Agencies such as the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and acts such as the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation & Liability Act of 1980 (CERCLA), the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act (SARA) and the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) provide just a portion of the regulatory labeling protocols that must be met.

The importance of proper MSDS and other necessary documentation should not be overlooked by anyone in the chemical manufacturing, processing or distribution business. Making this type of data available is not only a safety responsibility; it is also a federal requirement. Keeping current with regulatory guidelines by utilizing the proper MSDS generating software is an excellent way to maintain compliance for businesses involved in the chemical manufacturing industry.
