You may get a better response from a couple of the folks that are doing SDS - however, this is the old MSDS guidance for materials that are not completely characterized.

[DCHAS-L] do preclinical drugs require SDS?
Re: do preclinical drugs require SDS?
Our company tests a lot of drug products from other companies for container integrity/leachables. Does anyone know if these outside companies are required to send/have an SDS for these preclinical drug products? I was told that all clinical phase I or higher drug products are required to have SDS if they are going to be shipped (DOT) but what about drug products in the preclinical stage? I appreciate any guidance on this.
