Hi Raj,

I’m reaching out in response to your question: How current do the MSDS sheets need to be?  I just recently asked Darby for MSDS sheets on all the products that I've purchased from them in the last two years. However, most the sheets are dated 2014, 2015, etc. Is there an online resource for MSDS sheets?

OSHA’s Hazard Communication standard requires that:

  1. SDS sheets be provided by the chemical manufacturer, importer and/or distributor of hazardous chemical at the time of the first shipment of the chemicals and with the next shipment after the SDS is updated with “new and significant information about the hazards” (reference: OSHA Publication 3111)
  2. That SDS be updated by the chemical manufacturer or importer within three months of learning of “new or significant” information regarding the chemical’s hazardous potential (reference OSHA Letter of Interpretation 6/24/94)

So to answer your question, so long as the 2014, 2015, etc. SDSs are representative of the chemicals that you are currently being supplied with, you have the correct information. It is the supplier’s responsibility to provide you with up-to-date SDS sheets but it is your responsibility to make sure you maintain hardcopy records, digital records or both of all hazardous chemicals being used in the office.

Hope this helps!

Good morning!

I just recently bought your OSHA package.
Thank you.


Best regards,


Raj
