Does the EPA prepare or maintain Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDSs)?

The EPA does not prepare or maintain Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDSs).

You can view the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Recommended Format for Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDSs) online at: http://www.osha.gov/dsg/hazcom/msdsformat.html. A sample MSDS form can be found on OSHA’s website here: https://www.osha.gov/dsg/hazcom/msds-osha174/msdsform.html

For more clarification on the process and requirements for developing an MSDS sheet you may contact the OSHA: https://www.osha.gov/html/Feed_Back.html
