The U.S Occupational Health & Safety Administration’s (OSHA) Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) (29 CFR1910.1200(g)), revised in 2012, requires that the chemical manufacturer, distributor, or importer provide SafetyData Sheets (SDSs) (formerly MSDSs or Material Safety Data Sheets) for each hazardous chemical to downstreamusers to communicate information on these hazards.
The vast majority of ACCO Brands products are considered to be “Articles” as specified by the HCS. As defined in29 CFR 1910.1200(c), an “Article” is “...a manufactured item other than a fluid or particle:
Products that are manufactured or fabricated into an “Article” typically are whole units that do not and cannot posea risk in that they cannot be ingested, inhaled, or absorbed into the body through the skin, eyes, or mucousmembranes under normal conditions of use. By definition, this means that they are not classified as dangerousproducts and that there is also no intended release of dangerous substances during normal conditions of use.In addition, products that are non‐hazardous do not need an SDS.
As such, the products requested are either articles and/or non‐hazardous, and are exempt from SDS requirements.
