ESAD at Brenntag GmbH
Starting with assessments according to ESAD in 2003, Brenntag GmbH conducted the assessments in 2015 successfully. Based on the experiences from 2003 to 2012, all relevant sites were exposed to the assessments by an experienced, accredited external auditor.
ESAD II (European Single Assessment Document) is a standardized questionnaire, which was developed from the Responsible Care programme. The questions deal with requirements concerning safety, health, environment and quality. ESAD overlaps with the quality management according to DIN EN ISO 9001 and the Responsible Care program of the VCH.
By running the ESAD program, a comparable standard was created to decrease the expenses from supplier- assessments efficiently. Therefore ESAD is compared to quality management programs rather oriented to suppliers than to customers. For more details about the assessments please see at the internet site of the CEFIC below “Assessed companies”.
