Responsible Care®: RC 14001

The RC® 14001 technical specification has recently been revised to RC® 14001:2013.  This specification, hosted by the American Chemistry Council (ACC) has been fully implemented. ACC member organizations holding certification to this specification are now expected to be conforming to the 2013 version, and the registration auditors are verifying progress in updates to their Process Safety Codes and Product Safety Codes.

NOTE: The technical specification RC® 14001:2013 has been revised to RC® 14001:2015, incorporating the updated language and requirements of ISO 14001:2015. Transfer to RC® 14001:2015 is required to be completed by mid-September, 2018.  Contact your registrar to discuss transition plans.  There are many clients needing transition services, so it’s best to schedule early!
