Safety Data Sheets in Chemical database

Persons using chemicals are responsible for reading the Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) before they use the chemicals in question. 

Here you will find information on how to find SDSs.  


From the HSE-manual:

  • All chemicals must be registered on ECOonline. 
  • Those who are responsible for providing chemicals for laboratory courses must ensure that the SDS are available to students and kept up to date.
  • Those responsible for the preparation of auditoriums for use must provide SDS for activities that will occur in the auditorium.
