European and American toys MSDS/SDS



Service background

In European countries, Material Safety Technology/Data Sheet MSDS is also known as Safety Technology/Data Sheet (SDS). The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) uses the SDS term, while the United States, Canada, Australia, and many countries in Asia use the MSDS term.

MSDS is a comprehensive legal document on chemical characteristics provided to customers by chemical production or sales enterprises according to legal requirements. It provides sixteen contents of chemical physical and chemical parameters, explosive performance, health hazards, safe use and storage, leakage disposal, emergency measures and relevant laws and regulations. MSDS can be written by the manufacturer in accordance with the relevant rules. However, in order to ensure the accuracy and standardization of the report, it can be applied to professional institutions for preparation.



MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet) is a chemical safety technical specification, which can also be translated as a chemical safety specification or a chemical safety data specification. It is a document used by chemical manufacturers and importers to clarify the physical and chemical properties of a chemical (such as PH, flash point, flammability, reactivity, etc.) and the possible hazards to the user’s health (such as carcinogenesis, teratogenesis, etc.).

SDS difference:

The European Union and the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) use the term SDS, but in the United States, Canada, Australia, and many countries in Asia, SDS (Safety Data Sheet) can also be used as MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet). The functions of the two technical documents are basically the same.

China in 2008 before the standard GBT16483-2000 called CSDS, 2008 revised standard GBT16483-2008 “Chemical safety technical specification content and project order”, and the International Organization for standardization was unified, abbreviated as SDS.

The SDS and MSDS abbreviations play exactly the same role in the supply chain, with only some minor differences in content.

9. Physical and chemical properties

It mainly describes the appearance and physical and chemical properties of chemicals and other aspects of information, including: appearance and shape, PH value, boiling point, melting point, relative density (water =1), relative vapor density (air =1), saturated vapor pressure, combustion heat, critical temperature, critical pressure, flash point, ignition temperature, explosion limit, solubility, main use and other special physical and chemical properties;

10. Stability and reactivity

It mainly describes the stability and reactivity of chemicals, including: stability, forbidden compounds, conditions to avoid contact, polymerization hazards, decomposition products;

11. Toxicological information

Provides information on toxicology of chemicals, including: acute toxicity, irritant, lethal, subacute and chronic toxicity, mutagenicity, carcinogenicity, etc., of different exposure modes

12. Ecological information

It mainly describes the environmental and ecological effects, behaviors and outcomes of chemicals, including biological effects, biodegradability, bioenrichment, environmental migration and other harmful environmental hazards;

13. Waste disposal

Means the safe disposal methods of chemicals contaminated with chemicals, including and without use value, including waste disposal methods and precautions;

14. Transport information

It mainly refers to the classification and numbering of domestic and international chemical packaging and transportation requirements and transportation provisions, including: dangerous goods number, packaging category, packaging mark, packaging method, UN number (United Nations dangerous goods number) and transportation precautions, etc.;

15. Regulatory information

Legal provisions and standards for the management of chemicals;

16. Additional information


Which products need MSDS report /SDS report:

Some people think that only dangerous chemicals need to handle MSDS, but this is not the case. At present, the MSDS(SDS) reporting requirements are stricter, which has expanded to almost all chemicals, even some plastic, metal, textile products. Chemicals exported to developed countries and a large part of daily necessities are now basically required to have MSDS(SDS) to smooth customs clearance, some foreign buyers will also require to provide MSDS(SDS) of items, some domestic foreign companies or joint venture procurement will also put forward this requirement.


Products include the following:

Chemicals: Paints, inks, coatings, dyes, pigments, gasoline, diesel, kerosene, lubricating oil, asphalt, paraffin, alcohol, ethanol, methanol, formaldehyde, acetone, sulfuric acid, hydrochloric acid, all kinds of glue (adhesive), emulsifier/surfactant/flame retardant/defoamer/rust inhibitor/etc

Daily products: hand sanitizer, detergent, soap, toothpaste, lip gloss, eyeshadow, perfume, nail stickers, nail polish, tattoo stickers, skin care products, etc

Metal minerals: stainless steel, magnet, aluminum alloy, copper alloy, metal and alloy powder, iron ore, glass, ceramics, ore powder, limestone, etc

Plastic rubber: PP, PE, ABS, PET, PVC, PS, PA, POM, EVA, silicone, rubber, resin, etc

Daily necessities: mosquito coil incense, paper products, cleaning cloth, fabric, glass fiber, sponge, foam, fire extinguisher, artificial leather, thermos cup, etc

Batteries: lead-acid batteries, sodium sulfur batteries, dry batteries, button batteries, lithium-ion batteries, solar cells, etc

Stationery toys: neutral pens, watercolor pens, pencils, markers, ballpoint pens, chalk, ink, glue, correction liquid, Plasticine, finger paint, bubble water, electric toys, plush toys, plastic toys, etc

Miscellaneous: pharmaceutical intermediates, food additives, pesticides, fertilizers, animal and plant extracts, etc
