Authoring

We build your new SDS from the ground up using the existing SDS and/or other sources of information.

Translation

Att ta fram SDB för ett annat land är normalt mer än bara ren översättning, även andra anpassningar kan behövas. I övrigt följer processen det arbete som görs vid t ex nyproduktion. Vi kan översätta SDB för hela Europa, kontakta oss för en exakt förteckning över vilka språk och länder vi hanterar.
Producing a SDS for another country is more than just plain translation, other adaptations are usually needed that need a trained eye. KemRisk can handle SDS for the entire EU/EES, contact us for a complete list of countries supported.

Update

When a product is updated or modified, it's classification may change. We take an in-depth look at the current SDS and make the necessary adjustments.

Copy

Sometimes several independent SDSs are needed for the same product, it may be sold under several different brand names, eg.

Modifications

Minor changes to information in SDSs that do not affect the product's classification.

Express delivery

If required, different levels of express delivery can be activated for a surcharge.

Exposure scenarios

When the need arises, different exposure scenarios can be included in SDSs. Exact procedure varies from case to case.

Additional services

Regulatory compliance

KemRisk collects and compiles information from a variety of sources regarding changes in laws and regulations that may affect SDS. This is an ongoing, never-ending project and one of the prerequisites for being able to guarantee as error-free SDS as possible.

Continuous audit

Through our law monitoring, we regularly capture information that may affect our clients' SDSs. When we suspect that this is the case, we query our SDS database and based on the outcome, audits of affected SDSs are performed and new versions distributed to our clients. The process is continuous and guarantees as correct SDSs as possible at any given time.

FAQ

What is a safety data sheet?

A safety data sheet contains information on a chemical product, its hazardous properties, risks and what protective measures should be taken to ensure safe handling of the product.

Safety Data Sheets contain 16 sections whose headings and order are defined in the REACH Regulation within the framework of EU cooperation. They must be issued in the language of the country in question, ie when a chemical product is released in Sweden, the safety data sheet must be written in Swedish.

Why does Safety Data Sheets matter?

A person who uses chemical products in his profession has the legal right to receive information about the dangerous properties, risks and the protective measures that must be taken for safe handling. Companies that sell chemical products should therefore submit safety data sheets to the person who uses the product professionally.

Today, safety data sheets have also become an important information carrier for chemical products and they are sometimes used even in order to demonstrate to the outside world that the product in question lacks risks.

In the case of major procurements, demands are often made today that updated safety data sheets should be made available for review early in the process. The motive being that the buying party should be able to perform an initial, more technical, screening of the products being purchased. This type of requirement can also be used to reduce the list of potential suppliers, as considerable resources and commitment from the selling party are required to continuously ensure accurate safety data sheets.

Who is responsible for the information in a safety data sheet?

The primary responsibility for the safety data sheet and its contents lies with manufacturers and importers of chemical products. In theory, the down stream parties in a distribution chain should always be offered accurate information from the previous operator in the chain. Often this works fine, but doubts and protracted discussions between the parties are still common.

The processes concerning safety data sheets are complicated by the fact that all actors in a distribution chain are responsible for ensuring that the information that follows a product is correct. Often, in practice, this means that down stream parties in the chain may need to routinely check and adapt incoming safety data sheets.

Typical exampleA Swedish importer of a chemical product has difficulty in inducing his foreign supplier to produce a Swedish-language SDS, there may be a number of reasons for this. The importing Swedish company decides that they still want to work with the foreign supplier and try to solve the issue of producing a correct Swedish SDS.

What remains for the importer is then to produce a document in the right language, based on the exporter’s existing safety data sheet. Either on their own or with the help of a third party. (This is where we at KemRisk and our colleagues around the world usually come into the picture.)

What does the KemRisk translation process look like?

Whether we set out to produce a SDS in Swedish or any other language, we build each document from scratch, based on the input we receive in form of existing SDS or the actual formulation. A SDS translated professionally is therefore much more than just a translation, it is a complete, new version of the current SDB in the desired language. At present, KemRisk handle adaptations of SDS for the EU/EEA-area, but our geographical scope is steadily increasing.

Sometimes questions arise about our choice of phrases in an SDS, which is quite natural. Over the years we’ve been active, we have built up our own high quality phrase library and it is a central part of the value we add to our customers’ SDSs. In the special cases where maximum linguistic correspondence between different language versions is crucial, it is usually most rational to have us produce new versions for all countries involved.
