A product Safety Data Sheet (SDS) is a vital resource in successfully managing any chemical emergency. It is imperative the SDS is compliant. 
Unfortunately, many SDS do not yet comply with the international format and content criteria  required by Australia and New Zealand.  A non compliant SDS can seriously hamper the management of a chemical emergency involving your products.
The RCNZ will check your SDS before entering them in our database. If you lack the ability to ensure your imported SDS is compliant, the Council can arrange for your SDS to be professionally updated, converted to electronic form and produced as a CD ROM which you can then offer your customers
CHEMCALL® provides peace of mind by relieving you and your employees of an onerous after hours commitment. In the event of an emergency the CHEMCALL®  coordinator will manage the incident efficiently on your behalf.
