Objective: This study aimed to evaluate the completeness and accuracy of information on the SDS that has been reported to the SIINAS (Indonesian Industrial Information System). Methods: The SDSs of 42 chemical substances were evaluated using a checklist that includes (1) the completeness check which refers to the Indonesian Regulation and (2) the accuracy check which refers to the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) – info card and the National Institute of Technology and Evaluation (NITE) of Japan – Chemical Risk Information Platform (CHRIP). Result: The evaluation on the completeness check showed that all SDS provides complete information on the hazard identification (SDS element 2), yet none of SDS provides complete toxicological information (SDS element 11). On the other hand, the evaluation on the SDS accuracy found that 21 SDSs were accurate based on ECHA-Infocard and 4 SDSs were accurate based on NITE-CHRIP. Conclusion: This study shows that there are weaknesses in the completeness and accuracy of SDS available in Indonesia. Strengthening the knowledge on GHS and available resources as reference for SDS production is ought to be improved.
