ACC, AWO Extend Environmental, Safety Cooperation

Friday, May 21, 2010

The American Chemistry Council (ACC) and American Waterways Operators (AWO) signed a three-year extension of their 2006 Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) to promote environmental, health, safety and security performance through ACC’s Responsible Care and AWO’s Responsible Carrier Programs.

The MOA extends cooperation and collaboration and provides Responsible Care Partner companies in the marine (barge) sector the option of using the Responsible Carrier audit system to meet their Responsible Care certification requirements.  With a volume of approximately 70 million tons, chemicals account for roughly nine percent of total barge traffic

Since the original MOA was signed, all eligible Responsible Care Partner companies within the Marine Sector have used the agreement to meet their obligations for both the Responsible Carrier Program and Responsible Care, saving them time and money while promoting best practices that protect waterways and the surrounding communities.
