CHEMTREC Launches Comprehensive New Guide to Emergency Response Compliance

CHEMTREC, the world’s leading emergency hazmat response service provider, has published a comprehensive new guide to Emergency Response compliance, providing best practice advice and guidance for businesses exporting goods around the world.

Created in partnership with international regulatory experts, Denehurst Chemical Safety, the guide focuses primarily on two different sets of international regulations and how to achieve compliance: The Transport of Dangerous Goods Regulations, which aim to prevent and mitigate any incidents during the transport of chemicals from one organization to another; and the Supply Regulations, aimed at protecting chemical end-users.

The guide reportedly provides key information on country specific transport and supply requirements in a number of international countries including China, Korea, Australia, Brazil and Mexico, simplifying often complex regulations and providing the emergency response telephone numbers needed in order to comply.

It highlights how, where and why to display emergency numbers, and who must be available to take the call, as well as considering wider regulatory requirements including Chinese Hazardous Chemical regulations and International Lithium Battery Test Summary requirements.

Although many countries have now adopted the Globally Harmonised System (GHS) of Classification and labelling of chemicals as the basis for safety data sheet and labelling regulations, there is still a wide variety of regulations in place all over the world. The new guide will enable CHEMTREC clients to easily manage chemical compliance across multiple borders and jurisdictions.

“Wherever you are in the world and whatever mode of transport you are using, our comprehensive new guide simplifies complex requirements such as International Maritime Dangerous Goods (IMDG) and International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), as well as highlighting the specific regulations that require you to have an emergency response telephone number on shipping documents, labels and vehicle placards in a number of international countries,” said Christopher Brown, interim chief executive, CHEMTREC.

The launch of the guide will be further supported with a series of webinars to help businesses understand the regulations and how they impact the supply chain.
