Section 15 of the SDS

In the SDS, SECTION 15: Regulatory information comprises
15.1. Safety, health and environmental regulations/legislation specific for the substance or mixture

Your Health and Safety professional may be able to assist with this section.

15.1. Safety, health and environmental regulations/legislation specific for the substance or mixture

Ozone depleting substance (EC No 2037/2000):              (not) applicable (give details if applies)

Persistent organic pollutants (EC No 850/2004)               (not) applicable (give details if applies)

Export and import of dangerous chemicals (EC No 689/2008)     (not) applicable (give details if applies)

REACH Authorisations and/or Restrictions                      (not) applicable (give details if applicable, e.g. SVHC Candidate, Contains XXXX, EC CAS at X% w/w)

Any other relevant Safety, health and environmental regulations:  e.g. COMAH/ Seveso III categories or named substance  (not) applicable (give details if applies).  Note – do not rely on the C&L inventory to give you reliable COMAH information, e.g. COMAH classes, you are better off checking the COMAH regulations themselves.  If you need help, email .  We hope to include a section on COMAH classification within the knowledgebase eventually.

Note on WGK classes: in Germany and Austria, there is a requirement to classify your products for their overall harm to the water environment into one of three classes, WGK 1 (low), WGK 2 (medium) and WGK 3 (high).  This information is usually placed in section 15.1 of SDSs for Germany or Austria.  The instructions for doing this were updated in 2017, and are currently only available in German, see*%5B%40attr_id%3D%27I_2017_22_inhaltsverz%27%5D__1500642011236 (click on item 7 to view/ download).
