HOUSTON (ICIS news)--The International Council of Chemical Associations (ICCA) and the International Council of Chemical Trade Associations (ICCTA) signed an agreement on Wednesday to promote initiatives regarding responsible handling and use of chemicals.

“The dialogue between chemical manufacturers and distributors on the responsible handling and use of chemicals is essential to the industry’s commitment to responsible care and responsible distribution along the supply chain,” said Alain Perry, general director of the European Chemical Industry Council.

The organisations will promote environmental, health and safety initiatives in countries with emerging chemical sectors, the groups said in a joint statement.

Through the initiatives, the organisations are seeking to maintain cooperation between chemical producers and chemical distributors.
