SCHC (Society For Chemical Hazard Communication)
CHCS is delighted to have a relationship with US-based SCHC - a relationship that offers benefits to members of both organisations.
SCHC is a professional society with a mission to:
- Promote the improvement of hazard communication for chemicals;
- Educate SCHC members on hazard communication issues;
- Provide a forum for exchange of ideas and experiences;
- Enhance the awareness of members and the general public of new developments in hazard communication; and
- Provide guidance or technical expertise to a private group, legislative body, or governmental entity.

Our relationship is governed by a Memorandum of Understanding with 3 main aims:
