The 2nd Edition of the very popular CHCS SDS User Guide, February 2014 is now available free-of-charge on this page (see link below).

As well as a section-by-section guide to the content of the SDS, the SDS User's Guide also contains useful appendices such as a glossary of common terms and links to further information.

This 2nd Edition has been thoroughly updated throughout to take account of all the changes that have been introduced by such initiatives as REACH and CLP Regulations.
