RC14001 – Responsible Care Management System

SAI Global was among the first certification bodies to achieve accreditation for RC14001, and is actively conducting certifications for organizations in the United States and internationally.

About the Technical Specification

RC14001 integrates the American Chemistry Council's (ACC) Responsible Care® requirements with those of ISO 14001. The ACC represents the U.S. chemical industry. While ISO 14001 focuses on environmental matters, the RC14001 scope expands to address environmental, health, safety and security (EHS&S) concerns. Its structure is identical to ISO 14001, and in most cases simply expands an environmental mandate into an EHS&S requirement.

The SAI Global Approach

SAI Global can be instrumental in the success of your RC14001 management system. Our auditors are trained, capable and motivated to bring value and credibility to your responsible care system, while assessing its conformity to RC14001. Your auditors will have the necessary chemical sector and environmental, health and safety experience to meet SAI Global's commitment of Advancing Business Excellence.

SAI Global recognizes that the standard is meant to work for all types of organizations, and the manner in which it is assessed will be appropriate to your business. With this in mind, SAI Global has pioneered innovative new practices. We have extensive capabilities to conduct audits covering multiple standards and specifications, and we routinely offer integrated environmental, quality and health and safety audits. For larger organizations, we can also audit all of your sites and provide analysis of the performance of your management systems.

A unique feature that SAI Global offers its customers and auditors is the support from a dedicated Environmental Tec manager. John Fraser ensures SAI Global's on-going accreditation and technical competency by supporting customers, auditors, standards bodies and others inside and outside SAI Global.
