Retailers beware - chemical safety agency is coming!

http://www.safeware-int.com/2015/11/...sing-scrutiny/

Bit of a development on the recent changes in chemical safety. So DW retailers, you DO have responsibilities! At the bare minimum, you need a safety data sheet for every product. If a customers asks for it, you have to give it to them. If a brand doesn't supply to you, they are breaking the law but you are doing the same by then selling their products. So kick them into shape, kick them into touch or dob them in to the authorities!

I know my pleas have been ignored before but this is a sure sign that a cracking down is coming. So let's get DW and associates being a shining example rather than half the associates being shut down for breaches of chemical safe regs!

If they are selling it then I believe they are classed as a retailer so I would think so.

Something we have been looking into with the new range we've been building. Correct labelling, contacts, images, bottles and caps etc. Im sure there will be many that don't do it, a lot aren't doing what they should right now, let alone for whats coming

Of course it does! Lets hope they all have ltd companies and insurance too, cause when it goes wrong its THEM that will bare the brunt, not the company they own.

Doubt it, nothing seems to stop them doing anything. BUT, it will make it easier to prosecute them i assume. Unless maybe they get a copy of the msds to supply or maybe photocopy the labels? i don't know how that will work. They seem to be a law unto themselves from what I've seen on the bay lol

I think Mr. Jones is just informing DW members of their legal right to obtain safety information when purchasing products Kev.

DW member awareness of Safety Data Sheets is no bad thing in my opinion and may make members think twice about the products they are buying, how they are used and the possible effect on the environment.

Unless you know what precautions to take, or how to deal with an accident involving the product, how are you going to stay safe?

Health and Safety is playing an ever greater role in today's society and it's good to know that detailing products will not be exempt from complying with safety requirements.

I took it as a helpful informative post for sponsors and members.

How many discussions are there where people don't realise that some sellers on the likes of fleabay are 'cheaper' than sponsors because they're selling dangerous chemicals with none of the legally required safety precautions.

If they're willing to do that then they may well be willing to dilute/substitute genuine product so you end up being sent a different product to what you think you bought.
