ACS Committees have a direct impact on the governance of the Society. They influence the direction of ACS's resources to improve the professional well-being of the entire chemical scientific community. Committee members are appointed; ACS membership is a pre-requisite.
Following are ACS committees that focus--solely or partially--on the topic of chemical safety.
- Committee on Chemical Safety (CCS)

- Committee on Professional Training (CPT)
