AIHA Registry Programs is looking forward to attending the meeting to strengthen our partnership and to share the importance of the SDS and Label Authoring Registry with SCHC members, stakeholders, and employers. The meeting will offer a wealth of updates on the GHS, OSHA HazCom 2012, TSCA, and REACH 2018 and is the premier technical conference in this area of practice.

Guidelines for Use of the SDSRP Designation for Registered Professionals
The SDS and Label Authoring Registry has adopted a designation for the program to make showing the achievement of being registered more convenient. SDS Registered Professional (SDSRP) will be used to recognize registered individuals. If you are registered in the SDS and Label Authoring Registry program, please familiarize yourself with the guidelines for use of the SDSRP designation and then discontinue use of the previously provided insignia.
