I believe that the carrier will ask the agent if there is any MSDS in the transportation of chemical products and other dangerous goods. Only after looking at the MSDS, will you accept the shipment. So this MSDS is good enough to decide whether or not to pick up the goods. What's special about him? Is it related to air transport identification?
Is the Material Safety Data Sheet of the acronym, namely chemical Safety instructions, can be translated into chemical Safety technical specifications or chemical Safety Data, is a chemical manufacturers and importers to illustrate the physical and chemical properties of chemicals (such as PH value, flash point, flammable degrees, reaction activity, etc.) as well as to the user's health (such as cancer, birth defects, etc.) may produce the dangers of a document. In European countries, MSDS is also known as Safety Data sheet. However, the us, Canada, Australia and many other Asian countries use MSDS terms.
MSDS is a comprehensive legal document on the chemical characteristics of chemicals produced or sold by enterprises according to law. It provides 16 items such as chemical and physical parameters of chemicals, explosive performance, health hazards, safe use of storage, leakage disposal, first aid measures and related laws and regulations.
MSDS briefly describes the hazards of a chemical to human health and the environment and provides information on how to safely handle, store and use the chemical. As a service provided to the user, the production enterprise shall provide safety instruction with chemical products to the user, the user clear chemicals related harm, when using can active protection, have the effect of reduce occupational hazards and prevention of chemical accidents. At present, the United States, Japan, the European Union and other developed countries have generally set up and implement the MSDS system, requirements of dangerous chemicals manufacturers in the sales, transportation and export its products, and provide a copy of the product safety manual.
All countries in the world whether domestic trade or international trade, the seller must provide the product illustrative legal documents. Because of various countries, and even the U.S. states of chemical management and trade law, some changes every month, so if the MSDS is incorrect or incomplete information provided by the, will face the legal responsibility. Therefore, the writing quality of MSDS is an important symbol of a company's strength, image and management level.
MSDS conforming to OSHA requirements should have the following contents.
Item 1: manufacturer and contact method.
Item 2: components of hazardous chemicals.
Item 3: physical and chemical properties.
Item 4: combustion and explosion data.
Item 5: reactivity data.
Item 6: health hazard data.
Item 7: safe operation and use.
Item 8: protection methods.
MSDS conforming to the Canadian WHMIS requirements shall have the following contents.
Item 1: product name and manufacturer information.
Item 2: components of hazardous chemicals.
Item 3: physical properties.
Item 4: fire or flash data.
Item 5: reactivity data.
Item 6: toxicological properties.
Item 7: preventive measures.
Item 8: first aid.
Item 9: compiling information.
What is MSDS! What is the difference between the identification and the airlift?
Our country with the international standard eqvISO11014 - "94 (E) community also formulated the related standard GB16483-2000" chemical safety specifications written rules "regulation MSDS have 16 part of contents (MSDS is actually a comprehensive technical specification, focus on the harm prompt and safe operating guidelines, mainly includes the following content of 16)
Chemical product and company identification
The name of the chemical, name of the manufacturer, address, postcode, telephone, emergency telephone, fax and E-mail address, etc.
2 composition/information on ingredients
Indicate whether the chemical is a pure chemical or a mixture. A pure chemical should give its chemical name or commodity name and generic name. The concentration or concentration range of hazardous components should be given. Chemical abstracts index registration number (CAS number) should be given, whether it is a pure chemical or a mixture, if it contains harmful components.

It is mainly the legal provisions and standards of chemical management.
16 other information
It mainly provides other information that is important to security, including references, filling time, filling department, data audit unit, etc.
What is the connection between MSDS and airlift identification?
MSDS is not a test report or authentication report, nor is it a certification program. It is just a technical specification, which is fundamentally different from the identification report for air transport conditions.
First, the manufacturer can prepare MSDS according to the product information and relevant laws and regulations. If the manufacturer does not have the talent and ability, it can entrust professional company to prepare. (the certification must be issued by a professional appraisal company recognized by the civil aviation administration.)
Second, a MSDS corresponds to a product, there is no valid say, as long as it is this kind of product, this MSDS can continue to use, unless the laws and regulations have changed, or found new risk products, need according to the new rule or new risk to prepare. (the airlift identification has an expiry date and is not normally used across the years.)
Third, air appraisal normally only authorized by national civil aviation authority issued by a qualified professional appraisal company, and generally need to send the samples to professional appraisal company and then issue the appraisal report. If it is not convenient to send samples, the professional personnel of the appraisal company shall conduct on-site inspection and then issue the appraisal report. The validity period of the appraisal report is generally used for this year. After a year, it is generally necessary to do it again.
