In our European safety data sheet (SDS), we declare our product as dangerous goods (DG) of Class 4.3. We also have a material safety data sheet (MSDS) for an equivalent USA product, from what I can see, there is no DG classification required.

Is there any reason why DG classification should not apply for our product?

The USA MSDS may have been written for a specific product packaging presentation — with a restricted quantity of the dangerous goods in each primary packaging (receptacle).

It is likely that your SDS addresses the intrinsic hazards of the substance and is not specific to the particular packages that you ship your product in.
