VECAP’s mission is to increase awareness of chemical handling processes throughout the value chain.

VECAP is a tool for:

  1. Increasing the understanding of chemicals management beyond existing legislation
  2. Promoting and facilitating an open and constructive dialogue with all interested industries, regulators and stakeholders
  3. Raising the awareness of all personnel involved in the process, from shop floor to managers

VECAP is an innovative and excellence-driven way of doing business, based on ISO 14001 principles. It demonstrates the commitment of the industries involved to act in the interest of society and the environment while enhancing the competitiveness of local industries. It offers all companies – small, medium or large – equal access to the industry’s expertise in environmental best practices as well as procedures  driving continuous improvement and allows benchmarking for other industries to apply similar principles.

  • "As a regulator, we can only but support proactive industry initiatives such as VECAP which are already demonstrating their effectiveness in managing chemicals throughout the manufacturing processes. Moreover, we believe VECAP's philosophy of adequate control throughout the supply chain will help businesses to adjust to the new REACH regulatory environment."
