Responsible Care®

QVC obtained the prestigious RC14001® certification from Det Norske Veritas (DNV). The achievement was the culmination of hard work, support and dedicated effort from all departments and employees within QVC.

RC14001® is a comprehensive management system specification to assist chemical industries in improving their performance on health, safety, security and the environment (HSSE). It requires organizations to identify, assess and manage health, safety, security and environmental hazards and risks associated with its operations. Organizations certified to RC14001® show continual improvement and openness in responding to the concerns of stakeholders about the industry’s operations and products and also focuses on the chemical supply chain, IT/cyber activities and product stewardship.

The RC14001® Technical Specification combines the elements of the American Chemistry Council's ("ACC") Responsible Care® requirements with those of the ISO 14001 Environmental Management System.

Certification to RC14001® requires the organization to undergo a thorough  and rigorous 2-stage 3rd party audit process to certify that its management system conforms to both the ISO 14001 standard and ACC’s Responsible Care® requirements.

RC14001® is applicable, available and recognized globally and QVC is proud to join the ranks of many leading organizations worldwide as a certified member of the RC14001® family.
