Model agreement on trade controls revised

Model agreement on trade controls revised

To help distributor companies with their chemical security, ICTA has long offered the model agreement on voluntary measures on substances subject to trade controls. This document helps companies to adopt a voluntary, risk-based approach to identifying and addressing vulnerabilities, and to improving vigilance and preventing incidents. It also supports companies to enhance their training and response capabilities, and to maintain reporting relationships with key stakeholders. The document has been updated with a reference to the new EU Explosive Precursor Regulation. See here.
