Association of Chemical Distributors (NACD) CHEMICAL
HANDLER AFFILIATE PROGRAM and participating in the NACD Responsible
Distribution Process (RDP) which is regarded as the “gold Standard” of
product stewardship programs for chemical distributors worldwide.

Third-Party Verification: Earning Credibility by Being Accountable
Responsible Distribution Process’s most unique and
perhaps the most credible requirement is independent third-party
verification of written management practices unlike any other
sector of the chemical industry.
RDP Document Verification: First
as a prerequisite of NACD membership, companies must be approved
by an independent third-party designated by NACD to conduct
a review of an applicant’s environmental, health, safety
and security policies as prescribed under RDP.
Once every three years, each member is scheduled to undergo
an on-site third-party audit. The purpose of this mandatory audit

of its unique Third Party Verification, the first of its kind
in the chemical industry. The return on the investment by NACD
member companies to comply with RDP are shown in such measurable
examples as low worker injuries, fatalities, lost work days;
lower insurance premiums, and better relations with suppliers,
customers, regulators, legislators and local communities.
