To build on nearly 40 years of industry research and outreach, the Silicones Environmental, Health, and Safety Council of North America (SEHSC) transitioned to become the Silicones Environmental, Health, and Safety Center, a sector group of the American Chemistry Council (ACC) in January 2013.
Operating as an ACC sector group, SEHSC promotes the safe use of silicones through product stewardship, outreach and environmental, health and safety research.
The Silicones Environmental, Health, and Safety Center is managed in the Chemical Products and Technology Division (CPTD) of the American Chemistry Council, which provides technical and management services, issue management activities, specialized advocacy, research, education, communication and evaluation services to a core group of more than 50 sector and product groups.
SEHSC's members represent over 90 percent of silicone chemical manufacturing capacity in North America and include:
SEHSC works with allied organizations in Europe and Japan. Efforts of these associations are coordinated through a global industry council.
