As the United Kingdom’s National Chemical Emergency Centre, for the past 40 years we have developed an in-depth knowledge of the global chemical marketplace and its critical interactions with stakeholders – from regulator to supply chain. Our extent of knowledge and expertise places us in a unique position to understand and support the context in which our customers manage chemical risk.

We have a global understanding of issues relating to chemical safety and legislation, built through many years of horizon scanning and response to policy. Our regulatory insight and strong international networks inform our complete global regulatory compliance portfolio.

Reaction to the unprecedented change to the rules of chemical hazard communication is helped by our excellence in safety data sheet (SDS) authoring and management services  – with our global knowledge base enabling our customers to communicate accurate and compliant information to downstream users. NCEC’s cutting-edge SDS software and SDS services form a “one stop shop” for compliance.

Our decades of experience in chemical safety, regulation and Responsible Care have allowed us to develop extensive expertise in planning and preparedness, helping our customers handle chemicals safely and be prepared for the worst.

When accidents do happen, our world leading global 24/7 emergency response  helpline and chemical hazard software are at the heart of our entire offering and bring the pedigree and proven results to secure our claim to excellence.
