Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) are a sub-requirement of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration
(OSHA) Hazard Communication Standard, 29 CFR Subpart 1910.1200. This Hazard Communication Standard does
not apply to various subcategories including anything defined by OSHA as an "article". OSHA has defined "article" as a
manufactured item other than a fluid or particle; (i) which is formed to a specific shape or design during manufacture; (ii)
which has end use function(s) dependent in whole or in part upon its shape or design during end use; and (iii) which
under normal conditions of use does not release more than very small quantities, e.g. minute or trace amounts of a
hazardous chemical, and does not pose a physical hazard or health risk to employees.
Because all of our batteries are defined as "articles", they are exempt from the requirements of the Hazard
Communication Standard; hence a MSDS is not required.

The batteries referenced herein are exempt articles and are not subject to the OSHA Hazard
Communication Standard requirement. This sheet is provided as a service to our customers.
