CHIP ensures people are supplied with the information they need to protect themselves from chemicals. CHIP helps protect people and the environment from the ill effects of chemicals by requiring suppliers to identify the hazards (dangers) of the chemicals they supply, give information about the chemicals’ hazards to their customers, and package the chemicals safely. CHIP is well known by chemical suppliers, and many chemical users and consumers will also be familiar with the orange and black hazard symbols below, which have appeared on chemical products for many years.

Bunded Chemical Store for a Engineering & Construction Company
Excellent customer service!
They were very helpful when I was sourcing a COSHH store, and much cheaper than any others I found. Excellent customer service from initial enquiry through to delivery and beyond, kept the lines of communication open and provided all information in a timely manner.
