Chemical emergency helpline services are designed to support four business objectives:
- To protect people, environment, assets and reputation (PEAR) from the effects of an incident
- To reduce the scale and cost of incidents and prevent operational disruption
- To comply with international regulations demanding telephone emergency response
- To demonstrate commitments to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Responsible Care
Across the world, there are many different requirements for emergency response, related to both supply and transport legislation. The requirements often outline the requirement to display an emergency telephone number, meeting certain criteria, on a range of different paperwork, including product labels, safety data sheets, dangerous goods notes, etc.
The specific countries requirement may be determined by the country’s implementation of GHS, dangerous goods transport regulations, a separate domestic piece of legislation or a trade agreement.
The emergency number may need to be:
- Answered in local language
- Domestic / local telephone number
- Be displayed on product labels
- Be available 24 hours
Furthermore, these country specific requirements often change. It is therefore important to keep up to date with these requirements to remain compliant.
Backed by over 40 years of experience, the National Chemical Emergency Centre (NCEC) has a comprehensive understanding of legislation relating emergency response globally. As such, it is ideally placed to guide its clients through the complicated processes of maintaining regulatory compliance.
