The big issue is what to do when the manufacturer has gone out of business or merged. OSHA has confirmed that manufacturers who are no longer in business or who have discontinued a product line do not have to provide SDS's.See "Requirements for manufacturers, who are no longer in business or have discontinued a product line, to provide MSDSs and product information" (May 27, 2004).However, be sure to carefully check the revision dates on your sheets to make sure there haven't been any changes/updates that you might otherwise overlook!And should you receive an updated sheet, then be sure to read the question, "Can I throw away old or outdated MSDS's?
If you are looking for the SDS because you have the material in your current inventory, one might be tempted to simply use it up to eliminate the need to have the SDS.See OSHA's policy interpretation titled "Retention requirements for superseded MSDSs" for more information.Also see our FAQ entry What are my rights to an SDS?You may run into some issues if the material is no longer manufactured or has been reformulated, so some effort may be required.See the next question for one possible resource, the Wayback Machine, and more.

Our best guess is that they would require you to make a documented "good faith" effort to locate a sheet, starting with the manufacturer (see OSHA Field Operations Manual CPL CPL02-00-159 for more about good faith). Securities and Exchange Commission keeps records of publicly-traded companies, mergers and acquisitions, so you might try there as well.
