Safety Data Sheet is a necessary part of technical documentation for chemical production. Form and contents of SDS is defined in UN Recommendations “Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals” (GHS) which are internationally recognized. Document’s structure is made of 16 sections placed in definite order, for instance physical and chemical properties should be listed in section 9, handling information should be in section 14. However, it’s necessary to remember that the UN-GHS Recommendations are applied in modules into given national legislation, so the given country decides which elements of GHS they need to use in their system of handling chemicals. So the major differences are in hazard classifications (section 2) and forms of Safety Data Sheets. Distinctive difference of Russian SDS (RSP) is that they should be registered in Rosstandart’s (Federal Agency for Technical Regulating and Metrology) Safety Passport Register and presence of front page containing: stamps and signatures of both owners of the passport and Register’s maintainers. Another distinction is that in each subsection (except 1.2) all information must be referenced. Even data like “no”, “not present” and “not used” must be referenced. In comparison with SDS for export which uses short standardized phrases, RSP contains more expanded information. Structures of both RSP and SDS include sections in order to satisfy legislation requirement of a country, to which export is intended. In particular, section 1.2 must contain an emergency phone number, in Russia it’s usually manufacturer’s phone number, whereas in Europe it could be various toxicology centers recognized at a national lever, emergency services, etc. Maximum permissible concentrations in work area air and handling requirements also must satisfy national legislation. Therefore, it’s not sufficient to either translate RSP into English for export chemicals or SDS into Russian for import to Russia because national requirements for safety passports development must be followed.
