MEMORANDUM FOR: REGIONAL ADMINISTRATORS
SUBJECT: Clarification of Material Safety Data Sheet Requirements Under the Hazard Communication Standard.
Paragraph (g)(3) of the standard requires that chemical manufacturers, importers and employers preparing a MSDS include explanatory statements in blank sections. Accordingly, preparers must mark blank sections with any words that convey the idea that the information was not applicable or not available.
Based on an interpretive reading of the standard, blocks or sections may be omitted in their entirety if no information is available or non-existent.
If you have any question regarding this clarification, please contact Roy Gibbs or Steve Simon on FTS 523-8036.
