SQAS Distributor (ESAD)

European Single Assessment Document (ESAD) was developed jointly by representatives from the chemical industry (Cefic) and the chemical distribution industry (FECC - European Association of Chemical Distributors).

It is a tool to assess the quality, health and safety and environmental management systems of Chemical Distributors against the eight guiding principles of the Responsible Care/Responsible Distribution Programme of the International Council of Chemical Trade Associations (ICCTA).

The Assessment is carried out in a uniform manner by independent assessors using a standardised questionnaire.
