The National Association of Chemical Distributors (NACD) asked me to write the executive summary for the 2016 edition of its Responsible Distribution® Code Coordinators Manual.
As leaders in their communities and the industry, NACD member companies, predominately small regional businesses, partner with their suppliers and other distributors to ensure every phase of the handling, storage, transport, and disposal of chemical products is managed safely and securely.
The NACD Responsible Distribution program confirms this commitment. In place since 1991, Responsible Distribution requires NACD members and chemical handler affiliates (CHAs) to pass an on-site, third-party, Responsible Distribution verification in every three-year cycle.
This edition of the manual is the first to include an executive summary.
