Security is a top priority for America’s leading chemical producers. Responsible Care® companies are leaders in chemical security and work closely with federal, state and local authorities to help safeguard our communities.
After September 11, 2001, ACC members took the lead to enhance security against terrorism. Without waiting for government direction, the ACC Board of Directors adopted the Responsible Care® Security Code in 2002 to further enhance the security of our facilities and our communities. Through the Security Code, ACC member companies have enhanced coordination, conducted training and safety drills, and shared important security information with local emergency response teams.
