Caltha LLP Project Summary
Project: Product Stewardship Audit / Product Responsibility Audit / Product SDS, Labeling Audit
Client: Paper Manufacturer
Key Elements: Compliance audit, Safety data sheet, HAZCOM 2012 compliance, product label
Overview: Caltha performed a compliance audit for this paper manufacturer to assess compliance with applicable requirements under the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Hazard Communication Standard (29 CFR 1900), EU product requirements under REACH and applicable requirements on the environmental claims associated with products. Under OSHA rules, manufacturers must evaluate their products to determine if they are hazardous and therefore subject to Hazard Communication requirements, such are preparing and providing a Safety Data Sheet (SDS). This audit reviewed the client’s existing systems to assess the potential hazards associated with their products, and for those products subject to rules, to prepare SDS and product labels that comply with OSHA requirements. The audit resulted in recommendations for improvements to existing procedures to assure that all products and product modifications were in compliance with OSHA and applicable international requirements.
