Wherever the writer of the MSDS decides to pull it from.  Thi s may be from incredibly reputable sources or -- shall we say politely, d iddly-squat or elsewhere depending on the expertise of the MSDS writer and his/her datamining skills.  A good start is from the S pecialized Information Systems folks at the National Library of Medicine:&n bsp;, and then check out the various databases on the left side of the screen.  ; Some MSDSs are well-thought-out and quite inclusive; others?  well say what you want (not always complimentary).  Due diligence su ggests you do some datamining beyond them if you have a Health and Safety Q uestion.  MSDSs are always not the "end-all, be-all" becaus e sometimes, there's more EHS data to be found.
