What Are MSDS?

MSDS are Material Safety Data Sheets required by the Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) in the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations. The HCS was revised in 2012 and the sheets were renamed, Safety Data Sheets (SDS). You will see both names and abbreviations when searching for information. SDS are produced by chemical manufacturers and must include toxicological information, first-aid measures and much more about all manufactured chemicals.
