Transparency and Engagement

Monitoring and sharing with relevant stakeholders the latest scientific development on potential health and environmental impacts of PVC product life cycle.

Public reporting: The Vinyl Council is committed to preparing an annual progress report documenting the achievements and compliance of members against all commitments, as well as actions undertaken by the Council during the year and future commitments. Progress reports are verified by an independent third party. An in-depth review of the Program is also undertaken by the Program's Technical Steering Group every five years.

Annual progress reports can be found under the Publications section.

Research monitoring: The Council is committed to assist its members in monitoring national and international developments in scientific research which are relevant to the potential health and environmental impacts of the PVC product life cycle, as well as to share information with other Signatories and responsible Authorities and Agencies.

Stakeholder engagement: A Technical Steering Group (TSG), comprised of representatives from the industry, government and other stakeholder groups, oversees the development of the Program and the compliance of Signatories. The TSG has met four times a year since its inception in 2002.
