Chemical Handlers

Chemical Handler Affiliates are chemical handlers whose primary function excludes the supply, manufacturing, or distribution of chemicals. Examples include public warehouses, recyclers, and carriers. Chemical Handler Affiliates, like NACD members, are required to comply with NACD Responsible Distribution®.
