ICTA supports the development of guidelines for road transport of hazardous chemicals

The Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) and the Wuppertal University of Germany have taken the initiative to develop guidelines for the road transportation of hazardous chemicals. Globally harmonized guidelines can help improve the safety of chemical supply chain. Because transport of hazardous chemicals is at the very core of the activities of chemical distributors, ICTA has been asked to contribute to the development of the guidelines. Doug Leech (CBA) participates in the project in his capacity of chairman of the ICTA Transport & Security. See here for more info.
