Campaigns for the Company Associates Program
In the 1960s, IUPAC established the Company Associates program
to improve collaboration between the chemical industry and
the Union. According to the Union’s Statutes, organizations
such as industrial companies, research and development institutions
and laboratories, scientific societies, or any other bodies
interested in the activities of the Union may become involved
with it as Company Associates (CAs).
IUPAC Committee on Chemistry and Industry (COCI) is responsible
for developing and maintaining—in collaboration with
the National Adhering Organizations—an active program
to recruit, guide, and inform CAs on IUPAC programs and policies.
To facilitate the recruitment of CAs, COCI has produced a
new brochure presenting clearly and succinctly why companies
should join IUPAC and the benefits of becoming a CA. According
to David Evans, chairman of COCI, it is important to foster
the “A” in IUPAC, and COCI contributes to this
A copy of the new brochure is enclosed with the mailing of
this issue of CI and is available upon request from
the IUPAC Secretariat. If you belong to an organization that
is eligible to become a CA, you can help IUPAC by informing
the relevant department/office in your company or institution.
Please review the brochure and see how IUPAC and your company
can pair up to deliver a sustainable future.
