The National Association of Chemical Distributors (NACD) and its board of directors have developed five new changes in its Responsible Distribution Process to improve security.
These changes require all NACD members to improve continuously in these ways:
Place security among the highest priorities in all existing and new company operations, products, processes, and facilities.
Include in carrier selection criteria the evaluation of a carrier's ability to provide secure transportation.
Address facility and transportation security and take action.
Establish customer legitimacy.
Utilize an existing requirement to undergo independent third-party verification to ensure that security improvements have been addressed.
