responsible care logo
ECTA Responsible Care (RC) members are proudly carrying the RC logo. The sign of recognition by the chemical industry in Europe of their contribution to a sustainable supply chain.
Transport companies who join the ECTA RC program will get the right to use the Cefic registered RC logos and these remain under the ownership of Cefic.
To verificate the appropriate use of the RC logos, the RC companies will send a specimen to ECTA.
Moreover, non‐permissible uses will be forthwith stopped upon receipt of notification from ECTA to that effect.
If non‐permissible use persists, ECTA may withdraw the right to use the RC logos, without prejudice to any other right. Furthermore, when a transport company ceases to be a RC partner, they have to cease the use of the RC logos forthwith.
