MSDS CHECKLIST

This Checklist may be used as a quick reference checklist for the MSDS. The order may however be different especially the introductory details with the substance name and company details normally listed first. All contact details must be in Australia.

Topics in brackets are additional to the requirements provided in the National Commission Code of Practice for the Preparation of Material Safety Data Sheets.

Fields marked M are defined as conditional entry fields to be included when relevant and available - those marked are some possible additional entry fields added if relevant.

Numbers at the right refer to relevant (sub) sections of this Guide.
