The Division works to promote and protect the sustainability of chlorine chemistry processes, products and applications in accordance with the principles of Responsible Care®.
Providing businesses that manufacture and use chlorine, alkalis and derivatives with a forum that represents their interests and enables them to communicate and exchange information related to the most important themes concerning this industry.
Ensuring that the industry's needs are clearly defined, particularly with regard to equipment, information sharing and the improvement of the safety system for transporting chlorine, alkalis and derivatives.
Ensuring that producers/consumers of chlorine, alkalis and derivatives take part in the creation, development, supervision and implementation of the proposed activities.
Working with similar organizations, institutions and associations throughout the world.
Encouraging exchanges between manufacturers at the continental and intercontinental level, acting as a technical and consultative agency for studying and solving its members' problems.
The European chlor-alkali industry has based its reputation on providing relevant, scientifically sound and timely information. Stakeholders are informed of the newest scientific findings linked to the sector's activities and of news on regulatory developments.
Openness and transparency are high on the list of Euro Chlor priorities. In its turn, transparency is closely linked to Euro Chlor's credibility.
HSIA's mission is to rely on sound science in the assessment of potential health effects of halogenated solvents; to promote the principles of excellent product stewardship; and to represent the interests of manufacturers, producers, distributors and commercial users of halogenated solvents.
HSIA sponsors scientific research on the health and environmental effects of chlorinated solvents, promotes toxicology and epidemiology research on the solvents, and participates in risk assessments conducted by regulatory agencies. In addition, we promote and encourage the responsible product stewardship of chlorinated solvents.
The Japan Soda Industry Association was founded on May 28, 1948. The origin of the industrial group in this sector can, however, be traced back to December 1918, with the establishment of the Soda and Bleaching Powder Society. This society was then reorganized into the Bleaching Powder Association in 1920, and further into the Chlorine Association in 1937, which survived WWII as the Soda Division of the Chemical Industry Control Association. Part of this division was taken over in 1946 by the newly established Soda Industry Association, which was soon reorganized into the Soda Industry Investigation Council. The enforcement of the Antimonopoly Law in 1947 and the Trade Association Law in 1948 led to dissolution of the Council and establishment of a new body as a comprehensive research organization of the industry, the Japan Soda Industry Association.
The main objective of RusChlor is to handle chlorine Russian enterprises, government agencies and the public, protecting the interests of the chlorine industry, creating a corporate regulatory framework, facilitating the introduction of modern technologies and equipment.
TRANSCAERSM (Transportation Community Awareness and Emergency Response) is a voluntary national outreach effort that focuses on assisting communities to prepare for and to respond to a possible hazardous materials transportation incident. TRANSCAERSM members consist of volunteer representatives from the chemical manufacturing, transportation, distributor, and emergency response industries, as well as the government.
The World Chlorine Council (WCC) is a global network representing the chlorine and chlorinated products industries. It brings together national and regional trade associations, along with their member companies. The WCC currently represents over 23 national/regional associations in over 27 countries accounting for over 80 percent of global chlorine production. The WCC was formed in 1993 to improve awareness of the benefits of chlorine chemistry; further the practice and understanding of responsible stewardship; and anticipate and respond to relevant health, environmental and public policy issues. Through stewardship, research and advocacy, WCC works to ensure that the products and applications of chlorine chemistry continue to be regarded by policymakers and the public as sustainable and commercially viable.
