Dear Mr. Lindsay:
This is in response to your correspondence of May 2, regarding SARA Title III reporting requirements under sections 311, 312 and 313.|
The Hazard Communication Standard (HCS), 29 CFR 1910.1200, requires a material safety data sheet (MSDS) to be developed for each hazardous chemical produced by a manufacturer. The MSDS developed by the chemical manufacturer should contain hazard information on the chemical for all its expected uses downstream. Therefore, as Jim Johnston mentioned to you, you are not required to generate a new MSDS when the product is diluted to its working strength, according to the manufacturer's directions. The MSDS received from the manufacturer is applicable to the diluted mixture.
Teach your employees about MSDS's with posters and pamphlets from Safety Emporium.
Patricia K. Clark, Acting Director
Directorate of Compliance Programs
