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.
