Material Safety Data Sheets changing to Safety Data Sheets under GHS

In addition to ongoing product innovation for our customers, Rutland Group continues to take a lead in regulatory compliance issues on a global basis.  We are a specialty chemical company and take this responsibility seriously.

An example of this stewardship is our compliance with the new global format of MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheets) changing to SDS (Safety Data Sheets) under the new GHS system.  This significant expense to our company represents the ongoing commitment to product stewardship that Rutland is making every day.

What is GHS?  It stands for Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals.  It is a system to promote consistency of hazard classification criteria and chemical hazard communication elements worldwide. It is not a regulation but a framework or guidance for classifying and labeling hazardous chemicals. For further information, please visit OSHA's website at
