Globally Harmonized System (GHS) of Hazard Communication

Starting in 2015, the SMFL has moved to using the GHS for communicating chemical hazards.

...

  • MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheets) will now be referred to as SDS (Safety Data Sheets).

As the GHS labels must contain specific information, users are no longer able to make their own chemical labels as was the case with the previous system.

All chemical labels are to be provided by the SMFL
