2. You have received a safety data sheet from a supplier and you suspect that the supplier has not properly classified sulfuric acid. Before you make a call to the supplier, you decide to check for yourself how others have classified sulfuric acid. Go to the web site of the European Chemicals Agency (www.echa.com) and enter into the box the CAS number for sulfuric acid (CAS# 7664-93-9) and check the “I have read and I accept the legal notice.” Go to the classification and labeling for this chemical compound. The supplier label contains the GHS05 Corrosion pictogram, the GHS07 exclamation mark and a signal word of warning.

a. Does the information in the EU CLP classification database agree with the pictogram in the supplier SDS? If not, what pictogram(s) do you think should be on the supplier SDS?

b. The supplier SDS contains the signal word “Warning.” Do you agree that this is the correct signal word as reflected in the CLP database? If not, what is the correct signal word?

c. If you call the supplier and they are unwilling to change the SDS to fix the errors that you have found, what advice will you give to your procurement and manufacturing operations teams about continuing to accept sulfuric acid shipment from this supplier? What criteria will you give procurement to use when qualifying new suppliers of chemical substances?
