Accreditation under Responsible Care

Responsible Care is the chemical industry's global voluntary initiative under which companies, through their national associations, work together to continuously improve their health, safety and environmental performance, and communicate with stakeholders about their products and processes in the manufacturing and supply of safe and affordable goods that bring real benefits to the society.

Responsible Care was first conceived in Canada and launched in 1985 to address public concerns about the manufacturoing, distribution and use of chemicals.

The number of chemical industry associations embracing the Responsible Care ethic has grown from 6 to 53 countries since 1992.

Associations sign up to the initiative through International Council of Chemical Associations (ICCA), which acts as the 'guardian' of Responsible Care, monitoring its implementation and ensuring it evolves to address current concerns and issues. Each association runs its own national programme with their member companies.

India is one of the countries committed to adopt Responsible Care ethics. ICC is the affiliated organisation that decides the protocol/norms/evaluation/assessment and assigns the company the Responsible Care logo. It is a pre-requite that a company must be a Responsible Care signatory.

GSFC became a Responsible Care signatory in the year 2006. It was decided to go for Responsible Care Logo Certification in January 2007 and activities were geared up. On our request, Indian Chemical Council (ICC), Mumbai audited all four units of GSFC, in July 2008.

On satisfactory findings of the Responsible Care requirements, ICC granted GSFC the permission to use Responsible Care logo.
