You can also find the list of R- and S-phrases in the catalogues of Fluka and other suppliers of chemicals. May be they already has classified many of the chemicals you have to work on.

Subject: [DCHAS-L] R-S Phrases

Thank you all for the leads.  These will be helpful.  We have 7000+ pure chemicals to add both R-S and H/P phrases.

Several people responded indicating they were unsure of what these designations are –

Under the (slowly disappearing) EU chemical classification requirements, Risk and Safety Phrases had to be used in conjunction with a chemical.  Under GHS, similar, but not quite the same phrases and classifications must be added.

And, for the chemist R/S also refers to stereochemical configuration; but that is for an organic chemistry list, not this one!
