GPS Documents

The Global Product Strategy (GPS) is the industry contribution to the Strategic Approach to International Chemicals Management (SAICM) made in Dubai 2006. After a risk assessment, GPS safety summaries will be published by industry for all chemicals in commerce.

Euro Chlor is supporting this initiative by preparing draft GPS summaries, which companies can then apply their own corporate branding. Each company should then load the finished GPS summary on to the ICCA GPS Chemicals Portal.

The draft GPS summaries will be uploaded here as they are completed.

We strongly encourage all our member companies to take the draft GPS sheet, apply their logo and submit to the ICCA to meet their GPS obligations.

For more detailed information on these substances, the REACH dossiers have been disseminated and can be found on the website of the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA).
