GB/T 17519 - 2013 "Guidance on the compilation of safety data sheet for chemical products" is an essential Chinese national standard for SDS compilation, and a supplementary standard of GB/T 16483-2008 "Safety data sheet for chemical products – Content and order of sections". While GB/T 16483 sets the structure, content and general layouts, GB/T 17519 provides more detailed guidance in terms of the issues to consider when compiling SDSs in China.
Although both GB/T 17519 and GB/T 16483 seem to be optional, Chinese authorities judge whether the SDS is satisfactory by referring to them, since they are the only normative documents concerning SDS compilation in China.
