it is absolutely necessary that Altox, on behalf of the importer or manufacturer, has a profound knowledge of the chemical composition.

We are aware of the fact that in the process of evaluating whether a product is dangerous and might require a SDS, we acquire profound knowledge concerning the product.

We guarantee, that all information obtained will be treated as strictly confidential.

Foreign companies who sell their products in Denmark through the auspices of a Danish importer, generally desire to keep details of their formulas and manufacturing processes secret.

Prior to publication, the SDS will be forwarded to the manufacturer, for approval, if some of the confidential information has to be mentioned in the SDS in order to conform with Danish law.

In order to keep the information confidential, only the scientific personnel working for Altox have access to sensitive information, which is kept under lock and key.

Finally we wish to state, categorically, that no government body is permitted to produce SDS’s or official notifications.

Yours sincerely
