Established in 1973, The National Chemical Emergency Centre (NCEC) was set up by the UK Government to provide emergency response support to the emergency services for incidents involving hazardous chemicals (chemsafe).  We now take over 300 calls per year from the UK emergency services, relating to spills, fires, reactions and other incidents in all location types.

 Over the past 40 years we have developed an in-depth knowledge of the global chemical marketplace, and in addition to chemsafe, we provide emergency response advice to over 550 organisations across the world. Our knowledge and expertise places us in a unique position to support our customers manage chemical and wider business risk – from emergency response to helping clients understand and manage their regulatory obligations, providing bespoke advice and guidance on specific regulatory matters and how best to comply.
