Product Labeling, Packaging and Material Safety Data Sheets

Information on hazards and risks, as well as safe handling advice, is communicated to product users on container labels and material safety data sheets (MSDSs).

As we become aware of new, relevant HSE information, we update our assessment and hazard communication information. We work closely with industry partners, government agencies and the scientific community to advance scientific knowledge about the safe use of our products. We work with regulators to develop and enhance product health and safety standards. The packaging is the outer wrapping of a product. It is the intended purpose of the packaging to make a product readily sellable as well as to protect it against damage and prevent it from deterioration while storing. Furthermore the packaging is often the most relevant element of a trade mark and conduces to advertising or communication. It is also a source of communicating safety information.
