During our ongoing project with CINF in identifying sources of electronic chemical safety information, a set of questions that has arisen:
- What is the original source of most chemical safety information (e.g. flashpoints, health hazard data, reactivities, etc.)? - How much information, for example on a SDS, is simply copied over from another source and how much data is actually generated and/or verified by the author/publisher of the source?
- What is the original source of this data?
- How are potential conflicts in this data between these information sources resolved?
I'm sure there are people on DCHAS-L who have experience in answering these questions for professional safety purposes; any comments on any or all of these questions would be appreciated.
