The "European Single Assessment Document" (ESAD)

With the ESAD II, the European Chemical Industry Council (CEFIC), in cooperation with the European Association of Chemical Distributors (FECC), has developed a uniform evaluation standard with which quality, safety, and environmental standards are assessed by chemical distributors.

ESAD II allows suppliers to evaluate the performance of their distributors and match it with their own requirements. ESAD II is an instrument for risk management that promotes the introduction of quality standards and best practice. It contributes to the sustainability of the industrial sector, promoting society's trust in chemicals. ESAD creates a uniform valuation method that is applied by independent and specially trained experts using a standard questionnaire.

We are committed to this standard and regularly undergo these assessments with about 800 questions in the areas of quality, safety, and the environment.
