Mission

ICCSS offers chem-bio and environmental safety and security and cybersecurity to all stakeholders in need, including local partners, governments, international organizations, industries, academia, civil society and youth. ICCSS identifies, operationalizes and internationalizes best practices, capacity building, standards and regulatory measures. Thus, we develop global chemical safety and security governance and promote chemical safety and security culture and sustainable chemistry.

ICCSS groundbreaking work to identify and fill gaps in existing national, international and industry standards and practices, to raise awareness and promote new tools that can be utilized to enhance safety and security and reduce cyber risks, combined with our global networks and partnerships, elevates chem-bio and environmental safety, security and cybersecurity, as global priorities.

ICCSS promotes and develops global market in chem-bio and environmental safety and security and cybersecurity, to offer universal, inexpensive and user friendly products, services or processes which meet highest safety, security and environmental standards.
 
In these ways ICCSS contributes to a more secure world, public security, chem-bio and environmental threat reduction, sustainable chemistry implementation and circular economy development.

"Working together to enhance chemical safety and security"

ICCSS pioneer shifting in chemical security perspectives

ICCSS promotes the view that chemical safety and security cultures have common objective – the protection of people, society and the environment from release of toxic chemicals. At the same time, while both focus on the risk of inadvertent human error, chemical security places additional emphasis on deliberate acts that are intended to cause harm. The ICCSS is a pioneer in shifting the perspectives in the areas of chemical safety and security through promoting new approaches where:

1. Chemical security is not as a technical problem for professionals, but an enterprise-wide problem;

2. Chemical security should not be sporadically singled out for attention, funding and justification, but chemical security is integrated in planning and business-conduct circle;

3. Chemical security is not an expense but an investment;

4. The focus of chemical security efforts is not mainly on threat, vulnerability and protection, but  the focus of chemical security efforts should be on efficiency, organisational continuity, and preservation of trust, what requires the introduction of chemical security.

5. Cybersecurity is an inherent element and condition sine qua non of both safe and secure operations in all chain of chemical activities, and any industrial activities.
