Safety Management System

safety data sheets binderThe EDQM protects public health with quality standards for safe medicines and their safe use (see EDQM Vision, Mission & Values).

Whenever possible, the use of substances of high concern is avoided in these quality standards; most notably in the European Pharmacopoeia monographs.


Hazardous Chemicals: the EDQM complies with UNECE globally harmonised system for classification and labelling of chemicals; as enacted in the EU. This includes the supply of safety data sheets (SDS).


Biologicals: Directive 2000/54/EC applies. EDQM issues Safety Data Statements if a hazard has been identified.

Safety documentation is provided for occupational health only and is not part of quality standards.


More information is available in the terms and conditions for EDQM SDS and their use.
