Chemical Sector Council Partners

The Chemical Sector has a strong history of working in partnership with both the private and public sector to develop industry practices that build a culture of safety and security. In accordance with the partnership framework developed in the National Infrastructure Protection Plan (NIPP) 2013, private owners and operators work directly with their peers through the Chemical Sector Coordinating Council and with the government counterparts at all levels through the Chemical Government Coordinating Council. Visit the Critical Infrastructure Partnership Advisory Council Webpage for more information on Chemical Sector meetings.

Chemical Sector Coordinating Council (SCC)

The Chemical SCC is a self-organized, self-governed council of representatives from 15 trade associations representing a high percentage, but not all, of the nation’s Chemical Sector. The Chair and Vice Chair represent individual owners and operators from the trade associations. The Council provides a forum for private companies to coordinate on sector strategy, policy, information sharing, regulations, and risk management activities.
