About ECPI

The Plasticisers and Flexible PVC Information Centre is an initiative of the European Council for Plasticisers and Intermediates (ECPI), the Brussels-based trade association representing eight major companies producing plasticisers in Europe. ECPI is a sector group within CEFIC, the European Chemical Industry Council.

The main aim of ECPI is to provide clear, accurate and concise information about the many applications of plasticisers, their safe use and regulatory status, supported by robust scientific research. Based on its extensive knowledge of the industry, many decades of experience, and its wealth of scientific data, the ECPI secretariat is able to provide valuable input to legislative and regulatory authorities, non-government organisations, consumer groups and many other stakeholders. It encourages an open dialogue between these groups and it actively supports research programmes.

Furthermore, ECPI regularly conducts and commissions its own research projects and maintains constant contact with manufacturing companies that rely upon plasticisers for the production of everyday plastic items such as flooring, wall covering, cables, automotive parts, coated fabrics and medical devices.

ECPI members are committed to the global chemical industry initiative 'Responsible Care'. ECPI is also a founding member of VinylPlus, the European PVC industry sustainability initiative,


ECPI is a pan-European trade association representing the interests of eight major chemical companies active in the production of plasticisers  and intermediates.
