Home > Regulatory Framework
In order for chemicals to be used properly, safely and in an environmentally-friendly and healthy manor, a regulatory framework must be put in place.
Getting responsible chemicals management recognised throughout the entire supply chain of the chemical industry under a “proportionate framework” is our objective.
National governments and the EU have strict regulations on consumer and environmental protection, occupational health, chemical processes and transport of chemicals. As well as abiding by existing legislation, the chemical industry is committed to improving its management of chemicals and chemical processes through a combination of voluntary initiatives and specific action programmes, which are central to its commitment to Sustainable Development.
This combination of key regulations, soft laws and voluntary initiatives governs our operations and is further developed here-under.
REACH, Globally Harmonized System (GHS), the Basel - Rotterdam - Stockholm conventions, Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP), Integrated Product Policy (IPP) and Green Public Procurement (GPP);
Responsible Care® Global Charter II Global Product Strategy (GPS) II Long-range Research Initiative (LRI) II European Technology Platform for Sustainable Chemistry (SusChem)
