Perfect.  Except that vendors do not have to supply SDSs legally.  Most do, however, as a customer service.  The legal onus is on the manufacturer.

Do I need GHS compliant Safety Data Sheets for existing chemicals?                 Yes, by June 1,2015
Do I still keep the original MSDS as well?                                                  Yes, depending the states the law says for 30yrs plus the time of the employment of your employees
Do they have to be from the original manufacturer?            They should be from your vendor/manufacturer.
What if the manufacturer  no longer exist? 

Thanks in advance for your help,
