ES Guidance for alloys

This guidance aims to propose a generic approach to the drafting of ES/SDS for alloy producers. It also aims to highlight the use - in the ES/SDS context - of concepts addressed and explained elsewhere in the HERAG/MERAG classification fact sheets, like grouping and the use of alloys data. It is based on the experience and feedback obtained to date from various metals commodities. It will continue to be enhanced as experience with ES for alloys is gained.

Please note that version 3.1 of the ECHA Guidance (2015) on the compilation of safety data sheets includes an Appendix on alloys (Special mixtures), starting on page 113
