SOCMA Members Adopt

November 14, 2005

Members of the Synthetic Organic Chemical Manufacturers Association (SOCMA) formally adopted the Security Code of Management Practices as part of the organization’s Responsible Care program.
In order to help members implement the new practices, which are now a condition of membership, SOCMA developed and has made available online a chemical site security vulnerability analysis (SVA) methodology, as well as a computer-based model to enhance existing security efforts at batch and specialty chemical manufacturing facilities. The SVA methodology meets the criteria developed by the Center for Chemical Process Safety (CCPS), a technical industry alliance of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers. It can be used to fulfill commitments to Responsible Care’s 7th Code for site security, SOCMA executives said. “SOCMA’s new model is another tool to help chemical manufacturers of all sizes and product lines engage in voluntary site security practices,” said SOCMA president Ed Fording. “It addresses four main areas of potential vulnerability, enabling manufacturers to qualitatively evaluate chemical hazards, potential consequences of an attack, existing security measures and a facility’s attractiveness to potential attackers.”
