Requirements for further information depend on the type of delivery. For example, they vary according to whether the product is standard or highly refined, and whether an ingredient or a final consumer product. AAK’s product information sheets sometimes have different names in different countries, but in general, three types of information are available: Product Information Sheet/Product Specification specifies the physical and chemical properties of the products and is often part of a contract. Material Safety Data Sheet relates to safety issues, often concerning transport. This is a legal requirement for chemicals, but not for food. However, most customers demand this information.
