Notice: Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) - New GHS Standard Requirements.
The OSHA Hazard Communication Standard (29 CFR 1910.1200) was recently updated to require that Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) for hazardous chemical products be updated by June 1, 2015 to meet the updated Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS) format and content requirements.
The films produced by Raven Engineered Films are not classified as hazardous chemicals under the 1910.1200 rule. Our films meet the OSHA definition of manufactured "articles" (1910.1200(c)) that will not expose users to hazardous chemicals under normal and expected conditions of use, and are therefore exempt from all requirements of the rule, including the requirement to produce an MSDS sheet (1910.1200(b)(6)(v)).
Raven Engineered Films will continue to provide technical product data sheets for each of our products. However, effective May 1st, 2015 we will no longer provide MSDS sheets as our products are not classified as hazardous chemicals as outlined in the new GHS standard.
