The IWLA Chemical Council focuses on the legal, safe, and efficient storage and handling of chemicals.
Warehouses that store and move chemicals or other possibly hazardous materials need to meet stringent — and often government-regulated — requirements for safety and security.
The IWLA Chemical Council is a special-interest group designed to educate, inform, and share best practices related to storing and handling chemicals/hazardous materials in warehouses. It focuses specifically on role third-party warehouses play in the chemical supply chain and offers peer-to-peer resources for answering your chemical-handling questions.
The IWLA Chemical Council serves members in the following ways:
- It is as a gathering place for where members exchange information about best practices.
- Council leaders and IWLA staff monitor changes in legislation and regulation that may affect this industry segment.
- The IWLA Chemical Council meets every year during the IWLA Convention & Expo and every other year in Washington D.C. at the IWLA Legislative Fly-in.
- IWLA works with the National Association of Chemical Distributors (NACD) to increase awareness of regulatory and legislative issues that are impacting the supply chain.
