Safety Data Sheets

As of June 1, 2015, under revisions to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration hazard communication standard, manufacturers and distributors must have Safety Data Sheets (SDSs) in the new 16-section format for all hazardous chemicals they produce or distribute. Roofing contractors must have compliant SDSs readily accessible on a job site for all hazardous chemicals workers use.

NRCA has developed a Word document its members can use to request compliant SDSs from manufacturers or distributors. For more information and to download the document, click here.
