Responsible Care Management System
Albemarle utilizes a management system approach to overseeing its Responsible Care program. Like other ACC companies, Albemarle has previously used ACC's Management Systems Verification (MSV) program to perform an independent assessment of our management systems.
In 2003, ACC member companies agreed to use a verification process with a true third-party certification process similar to the ISO-9000 and ISO-14000 standards. More recently, Albemarle has chosen the RC14001® certification, which combines Responsible Care and ISO 14001 certification into a single, cost-effective process. Certification must be renewed every three years.
Responsible Care certificate
Albemarle’s Charlotte, NC headquarters received its certificate in September 2005. Since 2005, Albemarle has certified the following sites with the RC14001 process: Bayport, TX; Magnolia, AR; Pasadena, TX; Process Development Center, Baton Rouge, LA; South Haven, MI; Twinsburg, OH and Tyrone, PA.
