The material safety data sheets (MSDS) are part of the Federal Hazard Communication Standard. This regulation is administered by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) under the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1971 with its amendments. The purpose of the Hazard Communication Standard is to provide information to people who may be exposed to hazardous materials in their jobs. The MSDS also contains information required to comply with various federal and state regulations in written form. Chemical manufacturers and importers are required to obtain or develop a material safety data sheet for each hazardous chemical they produce or import. Distributors are responsible for ensuring that their customers are given a copy of these MSDS. Employers must have an MSDS for each hazardous chemical they use.
