Responsible Care: Verification

To help companies assure themselves and their publics that the ethic and practices of Responsible CareĀ® are indeed in place and driving continuous improvement, the Responsible Care verification process was developed with the involvement and continuing oversight of outside stakeholders.

This process has three purposes:

  • To help the companies improve
  • To help the industry improve
  • To improve credibility

The Verification Process

Every three years teams of industry experts, public advocates and local citizens verify companies by writing a consensus report that:

  • Summarizes the verification process and players
  • Identifies Opportunities for improvement
  • Uncovers findings requiring corrective action and successful practices

Once the team has successfully completed their work the company is presented a verification certificate. MEGlobal was verified as a Responsible Care company in 2007, 2010, 2013 and 2016, successfully demonstrating compliance with the 151 individual requirements that member companies must meet for Responsible Care to be in place.
