Petroleum products: looking back over the past 50 years

The field of petroleum products in CONCAWE has historically been concerned with product stewardship and chemicals control legislation relating to the production, marketing and use of petroleum substances. In 1977, the Petroleum Products Management Group issued its first report, titled An assessment of precautionary labelling systems relating to the movement of petroleum products in bulk, the objective of which was to promote the harmonisation of labelling for dangerous goods.

Over the years CONCAWE has continued to provide guidance to its member companies on compliance with emerging and evolving EU legislation related to the control of chemicals.
