NACD member companies
achieve RDP verification
Aug 19, 2009 11:13 AM
The National Association of Chemical Distributors (NACD) announced that 196 regular member and affiliate companiesí sites have successfully passed NACDís third-cycle on-site Responsible Distribution Process (RDP) Verifications since January 2007. These organizations continually demonstrate their commitment to the implementation of RDPís environmental, health, safety, and security (EHS&S) requirements.
RDP Verification (RDPV) is required once every 36 months. On-site verifications provide member companies and chemical handler affiliates the ability to successfully demonstrate implementation of EHS&S policies and procedures under RDPís Code of Management Practice to an independent third-party verifier. Such verifications have been a condition of membership in NACD since 1997. The current three-year verification cycle ends June 2010.
In keeping with RDPís goal for continuous improvement, enhancements were incorporated into this third-cycle on-site RDPV process. RDPV is and has been management systems-based, and now also addresses operationally-based EHS&S issues applicable to the site being verified.
NACDís independent, third-party verifiers for this three-year RDPV cycle are Compliance Solutions Group LLC of Baton Rouge LA, and Eagle Group USA Inc of Rochester Hills MI. Verifications of NACD member companies are ongoing.
