Dorf Ketal manufactures specialty chemicals to stringent, consistent quality, health, safety, security and environmental (QHSSE) standards in every country in which it operates. Globally, we believe in meeting or exceeding the QHSSE regulations, both explicit and implied, by our governmental and regulatory partners.

We are committed to safe working conditions, injury prevention and ensuring that our operations do not adversely impact the communities in which we work.

In addition, Dorf Ketal relies upon a robust integrated management system (IMS) that conforms to the highest industry requirements. We adhere to the European Commission’s REACH and United States’ TSCA requirements, along with other country and region standards worldwide.

Dorf Ketal’s integrated QHSSE management system includes research and development, manufacturing and supply chain activities for all of the firm’s specialty chemicals and catalysts through the complete product life cycle.
