Tata Chemicals Limited, UREA division achieves RC 14001 - 2005 certification

Mumbai, India | Posted on April 16th, 2009

This places TCL in the list of American Chemical Council's (ACC) best practices group on Responsible Care in addition to the Indian Chemical Council's (ICC) accreditation for manufacturing and distribution operations in India. TCL's Urea business is the only second company in India to achieve this certification and the certification is one of the major achievements in TCL's EHS&S management system.

Said Mr Kapil Mehan, Executive Director, Tata Chemicals, "Safety and health of the workforce and communities and a clean environment are the basic necessities for sustainable existence of any business. This certification will give due recognition and boost to the efforts TCL puts in continuously improving EHS&S management system and will make us raise the bar going forward."

The need for a structured process to implement and manage Responsible Care® management principles resulted in the Responsible Care Management System® (RCMS®) technical standard and RC14001® -2005 technical specifications.

The International Council of Chemical Associations (ICCA) has established a framework for chemical manufacturing companies to adopt and implement global Responsible Care® core principles. National chemical industry associations are working with the ICCA to ensure the continuous improvement of EHS&S in their countries. Indian Chemical Council for India adopted this initiative in 1993.


About Tata Chemicals Limited (TCL)
Established in 1939 at Mithapur, and part of the US$ 62.5 B Tata Group, Tata Chemicals Limited (TCL) today is the second largest producer of Soda Ash in the world with manufacturing facilities across four continents. TCL is the pioneer and market leader in the branded, iodised salt segment. TCL is also India’s leading manufacturers of urea and phosphatic fertilisers. Its urea plant at Babrala is the country’s most energy efficient fertiliser unit in the country. Phosphatic fertilisers are manufactured at its plant in Haldia.

The acquisition of an equal partnership in Indo Maroc Phosphore S.A. (IMACID) along with Chambal Fertilisers and the global phosphate major, OCP of Morocco in the year 2005 was the first step that TCL took towards internationalization. In early 2006, TCL completed the acquisition of the UK based Brunner Mond Group (BM). In 2007, TCL entered in to a 50:50 joint venture with Total Produce, Ireland, the third largest fruits and vegetable distribution company in the world and Europe’s largest and most accomplished fresh produce provider, to set up a fruits and vegetables distribution business in India. TCL also plans to leverage its expertise in Chemistry & Agriculture, together with its in-house research capabilities in biology and crop genomics to develop a significant presence in Bio fuels space. The TCL Innovation Centre was created in mid 2004 to develop world-class R&D capability in the emerging areas of nanotechnology and biotechnology.

In early 2008 TCL successfully completed the acquisition of General Chemical Industrial Products, (GCIP).General Chemical's subsidiary, General Chemical (Soda Ash) Partners (GCSAP), is one of the largest Soda Ash producers in the USA with a capacity of 2.5 million TPA of natural Soda Ash. The Company’s mining and manufacturing facilities located at Green River Basin in Wyoming, USA, are assets of a very high quality, providing access to some of the world’s largest and most economically recoverable trona ore deposits that are then converted to Soda Ash. The acquisition of GCIP takes TCL’s global Soda Ash capacity to around 5.5 Million Tonnes per annum
