Although safety at (un)loading stations of chemical installations has significantly improved over the last years there is still a lot of room for further improvement, in particular at customer premises. Absence of adequate equipment, procedures and training may put drivers and operators at risk and may lead to serious accidents. In addition truck drivers need to have a very wide knowledge of the technical and safety aspects at the different (un)loading sites and this information is not always properly communicated.
Development of an uniform site (un)loading document (SULID)
An uniform site (un)loading document (SULID) has been developed by a joint Cefic-ECTA-FETSA-FECC Working Group in order to facilitate the exchange of technical and safety data between (un)loading sites and carriers/drivers in a more structured and harmonised way.

Dedicated SULID by nature of products
A separate SULID has been developed for three different types of (un)loading sites depending on the nature of the products to be handled. These SULID documents are available in 5 languages: English, German, Spanish, French and Italian.
- Bulk liquids (download the document in UK, DE, ES, FR, IT)
- Bulk solids (download the document in UK, DE, ES, FR, IT)
- Packed goods (download the document in UK, DE, ES, FR, IT)
We encourage all (un)loading sites to use these documents.
