Product Stewardship

Safety Data Sheets

Safety Data Sheets (SDS) are a well-recognised way to provide health and safety information to professional users. While not a legal requirement for architectural lead sheet, these documents are produced as part of ELSIA’s Product Stewardship programme as a voluntarily initiative to help customers who may carry out activities generating lead dust fume or vapour.

Safety Data Sheets are a required for hazardous substances and mixtures in Europe, however architectural lead sheet products are defined as “articles” according to REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals)  and as such are not in scope of the legal requirement to provide safety data sheets.
