Safety data sheets and regulations


All important documents at a glance!

Our online shop* not only provides you with the safety data sheets of our products in the DOWNLOADS section, but also other important information such as REACH, RoHS, WEEEcertifications, declarations of conformity and other important documents.

Such data sheets must be provided by the distributor, importer and manufacturer of dangerous substances and of preparations containing these dangerous substances in excess of certain quantity limits in Europe and many other countries!

Example of the download section of a Danfoss item:

SDS (SafetyDataSheet) or MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheets) are tools for communicating safety-related information on substances and mixtures, including information from the relevant chemical safety report(s), through the supply chain to the subsequent user. They are intended to provide professional users with the necessary information and handling recommendations for working with these substances and preparations in order to ensure health protection, safety in the workplace and to ensure necessary environmental protection measures can be taken.

REACH stands for Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals. This is an EU chemical regulation that came into force on 1 June, 2007. As an EU regulation, REACH is equally and directly applicable in all member states. REACH harmonised and simplified previous chemical legislation. More information can be found on the German REACH Info Homepage.

The WEEEDirective (Waste of Electrical and Electronic Equipment) is intended to avoid the general disposal of electrical and electronic devices and reduce the amount of such waste through reuse, recycling and other forms of reclamation. It defines minimum standards for the handling of electrical and electronic waste within the EU.

The RoHSDirective is intended to restrict the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic devices. It regulates the use or distribution of hazardous substances in electrical devices and electronic components. Directive 2011/65/EU (RoHS 2) replaced the earlier Directive 2002/95/EC (RoHS 1) on 3 January, 2013. Both directives are unofficially abbreviated to RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances / "Restriction of (the Use of Certain) Hazardous Substances")
