Abstract Decree 1609 of 31 July 2002 regulating the handling and road transport of dangerous substances requires that the product safety data sheets be in compliance with the Columbian technical standard 4435. The Columbian Safety Council has therefore specified a new structure for these safety data sheets, consisting of 16 sections: chemical substance and identification of the producer; composition; hazard identification; first aid measures; measures in the event of fires; measures in the event of spills; handling and storage; control of exposure and personal protection; physical and chemical properties; stability and reactivity; toxicological information; ecotoxicological information; waste disposal; information concerning the transport; regulatory information; other information.
