British Association for Chemical Specialities (BACS)
BACS is a trade association whose members operate in the speciality chemicals sector of the chemicals supply chain.
BACS has around 130 members, from multi-nationals to SMEs and sole traders, including chemical manufacturers, ingredient suppliers, product formulators, distributors, retailers and service providers, and operates a range of sector groups to cater for the diversity of members’ interests, focusing on biocides, personal care, surfactants, water treatment and health, safety and environmental legislation relevant to the speciality chemicals sector as a whole.
BACS provides members with Access to Information, to help them keep abreast of industry and regulatory developments, and a Voice for Members, representing their interests by working to shape and mitigate the impact of legislation. And of course BACS events provide opportunities for Supply Chain Networking.
