Part 29 Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS)

Section 404 Material safety data sheet - supplier

(1) An employer who acquires a controlled product for use at a work site must obtain a supplier material safety data sheet for that controlled product unless the supplier is exempted from the requirement to provide a material safety data sheet by section 9 or 10 of the Controlled Products Regulations (Canada) (SOR/88-66) and complies with that section.

(2) Despite section 395(2), an employer may store a controlled product for which there is no supplier material safety data sheet for not more than 120 days if the employer is actively seeking the supplier material safety data sheet.
