I work for a paint manufacturer, and one of our customers has asked us to provide them with the standard European Union format for their MSDS's. I have been working on this issue for over a month now, and feel like I've hardly made any progress.
Has anyone had to do this inhouse? I have the basic formatting down (16-point format, must include risk and safety phrases, etc) but have had serious trouble being able to correlate the EU format to our US OSHA format to make sure that we're including all of the necessary information.
Also, how does our HMIS/NFPA information translate into the EU format? How do our "warning phrases" (flammable, handle with care, etc) translate, if at all?
I have the formula breakdown for product the customer is requesting, and have found all of the danger classes, and risk and safety phrases for the CAS numbers included. Now, how do I determine which of those phrases need to be listed for the formula as a whole, and which ones take precedence over others?
I would greatly appreciate any assistance in this matter.
