Our clients from around the world are driving value from the ALMEGO® user-friendly solution…

"We are a very small company and despite that we can run our entire extensive product range’s SDS in ALMEGO® with minimal staffing. But most importantly, ALMEGO® 's service / support is amazing; you are always taken seriously and if you have special needs, ALMEGO® as a program is flexible. 

Why we recommend ALMEGO®: ALMEGO® is a great help when we are to formulate new products and keep up with the latest labelling rules. 

Before we used consultants from Chymeia (which was excellent), but we wanted this task inhouse, so now we save money, and product development has become significantly easier, as you can quickly see how an SDS will look for a new or changed product. "

Andreas Lorenzen, Farvefabrikken Skovgaard & Frydensberg 

"As a producer of private label products, it’s vital to be able to handle SDSs for many different trade names. The ALMEGO® system gave us an easy way to produce SDSs with different trade names and in many different languages. 

The system is very logical with calculation features which we appreciate. Of course, we still need to make manual updates when we get new raw material information, but it is easy to see exactly which SDSs that will be affected and need to be updated. As the system is logical it was also quite easy to get started and we had good help from the initial training."

Inga Göransson, SimFAS Sweden AB 

"We, as a producer of brand and private label products, need a quick and flexible system to handle the SDSs. The system is user-friendly and can easily handle SDSs for many different trade names. The ALMEGO® system is the first system that we have found that fulfils our requirements."

Steffen Damkjær, UniCan A/S 

"ALMEGO® is a fast and very flexible on-line system. The solution is "up-to-date" and very user-friendly. SDS are not just available for EU countries but also China and the US. CHYMEIA is also very responsive when it comes to ideas of improvement and adjustment of the system. Online support always provides good and quick answers."

Charlotta Reimertz, Compliance Manager 

"I think ALMEGO® is very nice to work in. We are really happy that the US and China are included in the software. In fact, we use almost every country, except for a handful. Another thing we are happy about; The speed at which an SDS is generated. Your support is tip-top, and there is always quick help to get."

Pernille Simonsen, DST-CHEMICALS A/S

“ALMEGO® offered everything needed: a self-explaining, comprehensive, web-hosted system that allows access to its own database of substances and mixtures for both company units, much better than a locally placed solution would. Rather than filling an MSDS section by section, smart authoring allows the transfer of product knowledge into valid safety data sheets, with less effort than a validation of an externally created SDS employed. 

Much appreciation as well to the competent and patient ALMEGO® team for their outstanding ongoing service answers and solutions always come promptly."

Mareike Hilshorst, MCP Europe GmbH

“We have been using ALMEGO® now for a period of time and find the navigation and creation of Safety Data Sheets an easy process with this software. I also find the help I received at times of uncertainty was top class and prompt with all replies giving me fantastic service."

Pearl McCartney, Nicobrand Ltd. 

"We have chosen ALMEGO® because Chymeia works 100% professionally and has throughout the process helped us both safely and comfortably. ALMEGO® has given us confidence in the production of safety data sheets. We are convinced that it is the best program on the market, and we are happy for the cooperation. We are impressed with how fast the underlying program is working, which provides security and we are glad we can quickly make or update SDS.

John M Mikkelsen, PETROCHEM 

"I applaud the service provided by CHYMEIA in supporting their customers with their new software, ALMEGO. The response is not only fast but also very helpful. I always find my problems solved when I talk to CHYMEIA. 

The continual updates show that the functions in the software are always being checked to meet the needs of their clients. The notifications on these updates are also helpful. 

The structure of the software itself is user friendly. A basic chemical substance is created as building blocks to mixtures, and the amounts of each substance is calculated - and displayed - in the final mixture. I find this very useful as I can know the exact concentration of substances in my formulation. The concept is very structured and updating the substances also updates the mixtures containing said substances automatically." 

Irma Rosli, Akasel A/S

What is a safety data sheet (SDS)?

The main objective of a safety data sheet is to convey comprehensive information about a substance or mixture for use in workplace chemical control regulatory frameworks. Both employers and workers use it as a source of information about hazards, including environmental hazards, and to obtain advice on safety precautions.

The SDS is product related and usually not able to provide specific information that is relevant for any given workplace where the product may finally be used Although where products have specialized end uses the SDS information may be more worker specific. The information therefore enables the employer to develop an active program of worker protection measures, including training, which is specific to the individual workplace; and to consider any measures which may be necessary to protect the environment.  

In addition, the SDS provides an important source of information for other target audiences. So certain elements of information may be used by those involved with the transport of dangerous goods, emergency responders (including poison centres), those involved in the professional use of pesticides and consumers.

However, these audiences receive additional information from a variety of other sources such as the UN Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods, Model Regulations and package inserts for consumers and will continue to do so.

Which regulation sets out the requirements for safety data sheets?

USA 

The Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) (29 CFR 1910.1200(g)), revised in 2012, requires that the chemical manufacturer, distributor, or importer provide Safety Data Sheets (SDSs) (formerly MSDSs or Material Safety Data Sheets) for each hazardous chemical to downstream users to communicate information on these hazards. This standard explains the requirements for presenting information in a consistent user-friendly, 16-section format.  

Canada 

Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) supplier requirements are regulated by federal legislation – the Hazardous Products Act and the Hazardous Products Regulations (HPR).  

Changes made to Hazardous Products Regulations requirements on December 15, 2022 are in force. Suppliers are granted a transition period until December 15, 2025 to bring safety data sheets (SDS) into compliance with the amendments.   

Suppliers and employers must use and follow the WHMIS requirements for SDSs for hazardous products sold, distributed, or imported into Canada. 

The Hazardous Products Regulations (HPR) specifies the sections and content for the SDS. Schedule 1 within the HPR outlines the section number and heading that must be presented in the specified order. 

 

Can a company wishing to provide information for substances for which an SDS is not required, use the SDS format?

Yes, the SDS format and structure is a logical choice to use for such products as the SDS is designed exactly to convey relevant risk information in a structured and exhaustive format. Thus, the underlying principles of an SDS equally well works for all types of chemically based products whether they are within or outside the scope of the SDS requirements.

In what form and how often should an SDS be provided?

The SDS should be provided to the recipient free-of-charge, on paper or electronically, e.g. by postal delivery, fax or email. A system that merely requires customers to obtain a SDS from a company's website is not allowed. An SDS should be provided either before or at the time of first delivery of the substance or mixture.  

Where a customer re-orders substances or mixtures, then the supplier does not need to re-supply the SDS, unless the contents have changed significantly. 

Does an SDS have an expiry date upon which you are required to make a new SDS?

If there is no basis for changing the information in the SDS there is no expiry date. A version 1.0 of the SDS can therefore exist infinitely as long as the contents in the SDS remain accurate and up to date.

Is it necessary to complete all the sections and subsections in the SDS?

No. There may be places in the SDS where information will not be completed because of e.g. a data gap, or application can be questioned, etc. However, the SDS must contain an explanation or a justification of why the section has not been completed.

How much can I charge for the supply of an SDS?

An SDS should always be provided free of charge, it would be a violation of both US and EU chemical regulations to charge anything for the supply of the SDS.
