Just a note that we formally changed the name our our MSDS FAQ to SDS FAQ today, and gave that section of our site a refresh.

We went through the material and struck any references to MSDS unless historical context or clarity required the use of the term, replacing those with SDS, but we also went through the material and double checked that the answers were up to date with the HCS 2012 (GHS) changes that are now in full force.  As always, comments and clarifications are welcome.

We also redid the underlying HTML/CSS, to make it more readable and future-proof. However, it is not currently optimized for mobile devices as the depth of the material is not meant to be experienced on a tiny screen.  None of the navigation stuff at the top of the pages was touched either, as that will come at some later date as part of a whole site update.

I'll note that there are still a few remaining elements in our HyperGlossary that haven't been fully updated to HCS 2012, but we'll taking care of those as the summer progresses.  I just updated the TSCA entry to reflect our recent list discussion: but haven't yet pored through the new Act to see if the reporting thresholds and whatnot changed again.

Thanks to everyone for your support of our free SDS resources over the years.
