Responsible Care: Security Code 

Following the attacks of September 11, 2001, the American Chemistry Council took action to address stakeholder concerns about security of the nation’s critical infrastructure. One such action was the adoption of a Security Code of Management Practices under the ACC’s Responsible Care® Initiative. The purpose of the Security Code is to protect people, communities, property, products, processes, information, and information systems by enhancing security throughout the chemical industry supply chain. The chemical industry supply chain encompasses company activities associated with the design, procurement, manufacturing, marketing, distribution, transportation, customer support, use, recycle and disposal of our products.

Since the Security Code’s adoption, the threat landscape has evolved with new challenges emerging from a variety of sources. Implementation of the Security Code of Management Practices has enabled American Chemistry Council members and Responsible Care Partners to respond to these challenges and to continually improve their physical and cybersecurity management systems.
