The ICCSS is an international leader in developing and promoting chemical safety and security culture, best practices and capacity building at national, regional and global levels, among the different audiences, with an emphasis on governments, chemical industries, academia and NGO’s.

The ICCSS has become an international forum for those who are accountable for chemical safety and security at all levels of chemical activities to share and promote best safety and security practices and cultures, forum for education, training and publications on chemical safety and security.

The ICCSS is a pioneer in shifting and perspectives in the areas of chemical safety and security through promoting new approaches where:

•    Chemical security is not as a technical problem for professionals, but an enterprise-wide problem;
•    Chemical security should not be sporadically singled out for attention, funding and justification, but chemical security is integrated in planning and business-conduct circle;
•    Chemical security is not an expense but an investment;
•    The focus of chemical security efforts is not mainly on threat, vulnerability and protection, but the focus of chemical security efforts should be on efficiency, organizational continuity, and preservation of trust, what requires the introduction of chemical security.

A leading feature of the ICCSS is a broad cooperation with the national and international agencies and industries based on five core principles: sustainability, continuity, public-private partnership, multi-stakeholder participation, and modern management.
