If they export to the European Union, their documentation must comply with EC Regulation 1907/2006 (REACH) and 1272/2008 (CLP). Canada has its WHMIS in place. Australia has its WHS regulations, and so on. Korea and Japan also have their method of GHS implementation and compliances and would insist on an exporter being fully compliant.
