US, Mexico chemical associations sign MOU to focus on EHS&S

PHOENIX, US: The national chemical industry associations of US and Mexico namely the National Association of Chemical Distributors (NACD) and the Asociacion Nacional de la Industria Quimica (ANIQ) have signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) agreeing to recognize the value of each organization’s environmental, health, safety and security (EHS&S) programs known as Responsible Distribution and Responsabilidad Integral.

The MOU also includes best practices, information sharing and additional support.

The MOU recognises that the associations’ mutual programs work to reduce incidents and improve performance in EHS&S and that sharing of information and best practices brings value to both associations and ultimately has a positive impact on the global marketplace.

“This agreement is a testament to our shared commitment to ensuring our members are constantly working to improve environmental health, safety and security throughout the supply chain,” said Eric R Byer, president of NACD.

“We have much in common as NACD and ANIQ members work to produce and distribute products in the safest and most secure methods possible. Enhancing relationships across international borders helps raise the bar for product management and improved performance both in US and Mexico,” added Byer.
