 I figured many of us read MSDS sheets when dealing with paints, chemicals, etc... for our restorations. I received this at work today and figured I would pass it along so you are informed in case you are looking for MSDS sheets in the future.

*************
Effective December 1, 2013, new changes to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's (OSHA) Hazard Communication Standard will bring the U.S. into alignment with the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS). This change will help provide a common and coherent approach to classifying chemicals and communicating hazard information on labels and safety data sheets.
WHAT’S CHANGING
Under the new GHS alignment, material safety data sheets (MSDS) will remain the backbone of Hazard Communication Standard compliance. They will, however, get a name and format change. Effective December 1, 2013, GHS will drop the M from MSDS. Material safety data sheets will now be categorized simply as Safety Data Sheets (SDS).
Although the information will essentially be the same, the SDS will be modified to classify all products for health and physical hazards based on the GHS criteria. More importantly, SDSs will have a standardized 16 section format with a required ordering of sections.
