CES – Silicones Europe


CES – Silicones Europe is a non-profit trade organisation representing all major producers of silicones in Europe. We provide information on silicones from a health, safety and environmental perspective.

 

Our primary mission is to raise awareness of silicones and their many uses as well as to promote their safety from a health, safety and environmental perspective.

 

What we do:

  • Commission, co-ordinate and guide scientific research on questions of health, safety and the environment.
  • Interpret and evaluate data.
  • Provide information and perspective to European and international regulators.
  • Co-ordinate input from the silicone industry on issues affecting the overall chemical sector.
  • Monitor and assess topics relevant to the silicone industry.
  • Liaise with sister organisations – especially the Silicones Environmental, Health and Safety Council of North America (SEHSC) and the Silicones Industry Association of Japan (SIAJ).
  • Provide information on the benefits of silicones in everyday life.
