Reliability of MSDS
Some studies on the assessment of the accuracy of MSDS found that some of them have missing or wrong information and some are difficult to understand. It is recommended that users of hazardous chemicals do not rely on MSDSs provided by a single supplier but cross-check with those of other suppliers where possible. Smaller differences may have the origin in differences between national requirements or cultures (e.g. focus on liability).
