Regular members are companies that as a significant portion of their businesses make or sell chemical products in the United States. Dues are based on third-party sales of chemical products manufactured or sold in the United States (this includes products imported for sale in the United States).

Our members represent more than 85 percent of the chemical manufacturing
capacity in the U.S and share a common commitment to driving innovation
in our industry, economy, environment and society.


  It’s the best advocacy organization in the country. They have the resources, the contacts, the ability, the breadth to organize on key issues. And when we have a key issue, it’s ACC we go to.

The value, benefits, and opportunities that membership offers provide an immediate return on investment through:

ACC is committed to improved environmental, health and safety performance through the world-class Responsible Care® initiative, participation in which is a condition of ACC membership.

ACC delivers.

Even in the most challenging climates, ACC delivers results. During the 112th Congress:

  • We secured a White House suspension of EPA’s proposed ozone standards.

  • We maintained successful defense against the NAT Gas Act.

  • We drove passage of an appropriations bill requiring EPA to adopt NAS recommendations for chemical risk assessments.

  • We strengthened industry credibility while advancing sound principles for TSCA modernization and future bipartisan reform.

  • We helped defeat, amend or stall 281 flawed hazard-based chemical regulation and product ban proposals.

  • We improved EPA’s final suite of boiler rules to include more flexible options, work practice standards, and more flexibility for units burning clean gases.

  • We successfully achieved EPA reconsideration of proposed industrial boiler emissions rules.

  • We delivered liability protection to our members by securing government recognition of the Responsible Care® Security Code.
