Responsible Care® is the global chemical industry’s initiative to improve health, safety and environmental performance, to enhance security, and to communicate with stakeholders about products and processes. NCC is committed to the Guiding Principles of Responsible Care®. It is the foundation of how we handle the products we supply along the supply chain. We measure our performance and we aim to continually improve how we do things

Our Responsible Care® programme is assessed every 3 years by an independent assessor, using the SQAS/ESAD assessment tool.  See for more information.


This is the European regulation for the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals. REACH has a very wide scope as it applies to all chemical substances that are manufactured, imported, placed on the market or used within the European Community, either on their own, in mixtures or in articles with intended release.  NCC is aware of its responsibilities under REACH and has a REACH programme in place.
