The International Chemical Safety Development Fund™
The ICSDF aims to improve the delivery of chemical safety worldwide by correcting imbalances between regional safety regulations that negatively affect the safety of people.
The ICSDF focuses its investments on several key priority areas. This is known as 'thematic concentration':
Awareness and training;
Safety Data Sheets and chemical risk assessment;
Reward and recognition.
The ICSDF resources allocated to these priorities will depend on the specific person or business.
Awareness and training, at least 50% of funds;
Safety Data Sheets and chemical risk assessment, maximum 20% of funds.
Furthermore, some ICSDF resources must be channelled specifically towards professional support projects:
Safety consultant partnerships: 15%;
Service development (including SaaS): 5%; and
Businesses involved in the chemical industry: 5%.
ICSDF are currently supporting the following projects:
