m-MAP Training Coming Soon

Published 12th November 2018




m-MAP is a specially designed programme within Chem-MAP to support manufacturers of materials with implementing responsible chemical management in their supply chains.

The m-MAP Programme is divided into two key modules:

  •  Module 1 – Chem-MAP Approved Technician (CAT)
  •  Module 2 – Chem-MAP Approved Manufacturer (CAM)


Module 1 of m-MAP consists of a series of online training and assessment modules. These modules are aimed at providing education to technicians who handle chemicals at manufacturing facilities, to enable them to develop their understanding of the principles and practices of responsible chemical management within a manufacturing facility. 

m-MAP online training consists of 8 modules, these include:

1.       An Introduction to Chem-MAP & Chemical Management

2.       Understanding Safety Data Sheets

3.       RSL and MRSL

4.       Setting up a Chemical Inventory Log (CIL)

5.       Responsible Chemical Procurement

6.       Chemical Handling and Health & Safety

7.       Chemical Storage and Waste Management

8.       Wastewater Management


Through successful completion of the online training modules and assessments, technicians can be awarded Chem-MAP Approved Technician (CAT) status. There are two CAT levels that are achievable:


Level 1 Chem-MAP Approved Technician (CAT)

The Level 1 CAT award can be achieved through successful completion of individual modules and examinations.

Level 2 Chem-MAP Approved Technician (CAT)

The Level 2 CAT award can be achieved through successful completion of all modules and examinations.



Module 2 of m-MAP consists of an on-site chemical management audit of the manufacturing facilities, covering:

  • Chemical inputs (evaluating if sourced from a ZDHC approved supplier)
  • The percentage of technicians awarded CAT status
  • Chemical management at facility level
  • Chemical management training followed by an assessment


Through successful completion of the m-Map audit, the manufacturing facility can become a Chem-MAP Approved Manufacturer (CAM).
