The information provided in Safety Data Sheet form the basis for managing many compliance requirements regarding the storage, handling, transport and disposal of the product, as well as managing risks that chemical products impose.The GHS (Globally Harmonised System) is a global system for the classification of chemicals that is recently adopted by Australia and it concerns the classification of chemicals, labels and safety data sheets.High visibility SDS folders are available from MSDS. Safety Data Sheets need to show information about other constituents of the chemical if they are present in hazardous amounts, not just the active constituent.
The number of pages in a Safety Data Sheet may vary and depends on the amount of information that exists for each particular substance.

It is recommended that a folder is kept clearly marked and with Safety Data Sheets stored alphabetically by trade name. Agricultural and veterinary chemicals are sold in a variety of formulations, typically to suit their physical state and use patterns.
