The support of a powerful and effective lobbying organisation
CIA represents the UK industry regionally, nationally and internationally and lobbies to ensure legislation is shaped to support the chemical and pharmaceutical industries, implemented in a way that delivers results without disproportionate financial or administrative costs.
Through our pragmatic approach we have been tremendously effective in campaigning for support on specific schemes of importance and making recommendations to Government on what is required to maintain the industry's significant position supporting the UK economy.
We work proactively with the English regions, Wales and Scotland - where numerous Government funded initiatives have been set up, to ensure the UK is seen as a good place to do business.
The CIA and representatives of member companies regularly meet with UK, Scottish and EU Government Ministers and senior officials when issues need to be debated and decisions made at a very senior level.
We ensure Government, regulators and policy makers hear your voice when policy is being formulated or when business in the sector is being consulted - whatever the size of your company, through us you can ensure your interests will be looked after.
