Chemical industry is committed to the safe management of chemicals in their entire life cycle. Through International Council of Chemical Associations (ICCA), this commitment is developed through two global programs Responsible Care and the Global Product Strategy (GPS). GPS advocates a combination of regulations and voluntary programs to harmonized global level of product safety assessment.
ICCA's main efforts are focusing on:

  • Defining a "base set of information" for chemicals in commerce
  • Sharing relevant information through safety summaries
  • Promoting a tiered process for evaluating risk and identifying appropriate risk management actions for chemicals in commerce
  • Extending the guidance for safety assessment (e.g. ICCA Product Stewardship Guidelines) on a global scale
  • Helping to define safe use conditions for chemicals and provide guidance to companies to enable them to meet safe use conditions
  • Measuring industry performance and reporting against the SAICM KPI
  • Improves product stewardship cooperation with downstream customers of the chemical industry
  • Supports partnerships with intergovernmental organizations and others to enhance product stewardship
  • Enhances outreach and dialogue with customers, the public and other stakeholders

ICCA will also share GPS information with Governments to meet regulatory requirements and improve industry performance in countries where such regulations are not yet in place.
