NYNAS BITUMEN SAFETY DATA SHEETS

Safety Data Sheets

The Safety Data Sheet (SDS) is the main channel for communication down the supply chain on REACH related information. They contain information for guidance on safe use such as; classification and labelling, first aid, storage and handling, exposure control, transport classification, etc.

Bitumen is not classified as hazardous and there is currently no legal requirement to provide SDSs for bitumen. However, SDSs do contain very important information regarding safe handling of bitumen and therefore it is industry practice.
