I haven't followed the Canadian rules closely, but I know they planned to keep the requirement for listing toxic ingredients in mixtures that exceed 1%.  The US SDS no longer has this requirement.  So that's something that it will be interesting to see how it shakes out.

First we need to make sure it gets published in Gazette II as written and follow the implementation dates.  The  Carcinogenicity, PHNOC, HHNOC and Biohazardous Infectious Materials hazard classes statements, can be added to the SDS and used as "Supplementary Information" on the US version.  We also need to look at any CPL guidance documents that will come out of OSHA on label info.  Melding is to early right now

Dear DCHAS members,

I am currently working on creating a GHS-compliant SDS that is a hybrid of both the U.S. and Canadian versions.

Has anyone made an attempt at this? I am finding out that merely cutting & pasting one into the other is not going to work.

Thank you in advance for any feedback possible.
