About Responsible Distribution

In nearly 45 years of service to its members, NACD has placed the highest priority on the health, safety, and security of employees, communities, and the environment.

In December 1991, the member companies of NACD undertook as its most important mission the inception of Responsible Distribution, developed by NACD members for NACD members. This year, NACD celebrates 25 years of improving safety and performance through Responsible Distribution.

Responsible Distribution is a mandatory third-party verified environmental, health, safety & security program that lets members demonstrate their commitment to continuous performance improvement in every phase of chemical storage, handling, transportation, and disposal. NACD members play a leadership role in their communities as information resources and are eager to provide the same assistance and guidance to local, state, and federal legislators on technical issues relating to the safe handling, storage, transportation, use, and disposal of chemical products.
