A key component of an effective potent compound safety program is the accurate determination and communication of potential hazards of the material being handled. For many years, environmental, health, and safety professionals have used safety data sheets (SDS), formerly known as material safety data sheets (MSDS), to facilitate this communication.
Since 2002, Affygility Solutions has provided SDS authoring/writing services for both small and large biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies. Our technical staff has created hundreds of safety data sheets for discovery compounds, active pharmaceutical ingredients, and finished products.
Affygility’s SDS authoring service includes the use of a standard 16-section safety data sheet that meets current Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and Global Harmonized System (GHS) requirements.
Using an established process, our technical staff will classify your material into the appropriate GHS classifications, assign hazard and precautionary statements, determine IATA/DOT classification, and much more.
For an additional charge, Affygility Solutions can have our occupational toxicologists review your pre-clinical and clinical data for your material and assign it into your company's potent compound control band, or if you use a contract manufacturer, we will work with them to assign the material into their control banding scheme. For compounds in later stages of development, we can also determine a numerical occupational exposure limit (OEL) for the compound.
