Notes for Chemical Manufacturers, Importers, and Distributors

The procedures should identify the system in place to conduct hazard determinations. The system should identify the person or department responsible for conducting the hazard determination and the research strategy involved. Chemical manufacturers which rely on information from upstream suppliers should state this in their written program.

  2. Transmittal of MSDSs - Chemical manufacturers, importers, and distributors should develop a system to ensure that material safety data sheets are transmitted to customers. The system should identify the person or department responsible for ensuring the transmittal of material safety data sheets and should include a method to ensure that transmittal is accomplished as required by 29 CFR 1910.1200.

  3. Labels - Chemical manufacturers, importers, and distributors should have a system for ensuring appropriate labeling of hazardous chemicals.

  4. Updating Labels/MSDSs - A system should be detailed assigning responsibility and periodic review of scientific information required to update material safety data sheets and labels as required by 29 CFR 1910.1200.
