The Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) or Safety Data Sheet (SDS) is a document that contains information on products with potentially hazardous contents. Many products, especially electronics, contain compounds that pose health, fire, reactivity, or environmental risks when shipped. An MSDS/SDS is usually required for lithium-ion batteries or products containing specified chemicals.

You can find an MSDS/SDS form by searching online for; item name + model number +  MSDS or SDS.

For example: "iPhone 7 MSDS"

If you cannot find it online, simply contact the seller to obtain this form. You'll need to upload this completed form to your Forward.me account using the "Provide Information" option.

MSDS/SDS form will be required for the following countries regardless of the number of batteries in your package:

Australia, Bangladesh, Brunei Darussalam, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Laos, Macao, Malaysia, Maldives, New Zealand, Pakistan, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam
