As usual, our friends at Easiway are leading the way in regulatory and environmental protection by updating their Safety Data Sheets per the new mandatory governmental regulations. Notice that the SDS's are available on our website on each Easiway item page. Feel free to give us a call if you have any questions. We will add other SDS's as they become available from our other vendors.
GHS-The Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals
It is here. The deadline for all chemical manufacturers to legally comply with the new GHS classification and labeling of chemicals is June 1, 2015.
For 30 years Easiway has led the graphic arts industry in disclosure and proper identification of the chemicals we manufacture. We have contracted with a consulting firm to perform additional testing and analysis ensuring we adopted the GHS System as it was designed to be. We are continually educating our employees, distributors and end users on this new policy and are providing you with compliant, professional SDS and labeling.
What is GHS?
GHS is an internationally mandated information system which replace the various product classification and labeling standards currently used across different countries of the United Nations.
How does it affect you?
As an end user of Easiway products you will notice a change in the look and information on our product labels and SDS. The final rule requires product manufacturers to adopt this new GHS standard by June 1, 2015 (product distributors have until December 1, 2015). This means as of today you will see this new SDS sheet and labeling for our products.
How do you get these updated SDS?
