Representing the Business of Chemistry

The New York State Chemistry Council is a statewide trade association that serves as the premier voice on chemicals, environmental, and health and safety issues that impact on chemical companies and the industry at large in New York. We serve our members by providing legislative and regulatory advocacy, information, counsel and support, as well as help them respond to the initiatives and concerns of elected officials, regulators and community groups.

Legislative, Advocacy and Regulatory Issues

NYSCC represents member companies and the chemistry industry before the New York State Legislature, government agencies and regulatory bodies.  We meet with decision makers to promote science based policies and advocate for policies that promote innovation, health and safety, sustainability and a competitive business environment.
