For which countries do you need to adjust the emergency telephone number in the SDS?

In some countries, the list of emergency telephone numbers differs from the international number 112, which is known in the EU. 

That's why I've put together a simple guide for you today. It shows which countries you should include emergency telephone numbers for on your safety data sheet, to avoid any issues. These phone numbers are listed in section 1.4. of SDS.

I've listed them in alphabetical order below to make it easier to understand.

If you put these phone numbers on your safety sheets for those countries, you're playing it safe. 

Before I finish up, I want to mention another helpful option. Some countries have poison centers you can call if there's an emergency, like Chemtrec. These places are open 24/7, but you should know that they charge for their services, so you'll need to sign up with them before you can use their numbers on your safety sheets. 

I hope this info helps you make sure your safety sheets follow the rules about chemicals.
