Indian Chemical Council (ICC) in cooperation with Sandia National Laboratories' International Chemical Threat Reduction (ICTR) supported by the U.S. Department of State Chemical Security Program is organizing a Five-day Workshop on "Advanced Practices Regarding Chemical Security" on 29 August - 2 September 2016 at Chancery I, The Orchid Mumbai (70/C Nehru Road, Adjacent to Domestic Airport, Vile Parle (East), Mumbai - 400 099. 

OBJECTIVE

The primary goals of the Workshop are to review chemical security and its relationship to chemical safety, to review the properties of most significant classes of chemical hazards, including dual-use chemicals and hazardous industrial chemicals, to discuss the principles of chemical security risk assessment and facility vulnerability assessment, to review main components of chemical security for industrial sites, focusing on physical protection, cyber security, and material accountability, and to discuss the importance of monitoring chemical inventory and securing chemicals at all distribution points.

Sandia National Laboratories

Sandia National Laboratories, managed and operated by the Sandia Corporation (a wholly owned subsidiary of Lockheed Martin), is a major United States Department of Energy research and development national laboratory.

Sandia National Laboratories has the mission to anticipate and resolve emerging national security challenges, innovate and discover new technologies to strengthen the nation's technological superiority, to create value through products and services that solve important national security challenges, and to inform the national debate where technology policy is critical to preserving security and freedom throughout our world. 

Within this mission space, Sandia has defined a specific strategic unit focusing on the reduction of chemical and biological dangers across the globe: Reducing Global Chemical and Biological Dangers (RGCBD).  RGCBD's mission was defined in an Oct 2015 strategic plan as to provide effective advice, analysis, technologies, and enterprise-level solutions to manage the highest-priority risks associated with dangerous chemical and biological agents around the world.
