A major concern of Sinteco is to operate in full compliance with all regulations applicable to the logistics of Chemical Goods and, in particular, to dangerous products or to materials subject to special rules: this is done to ensure Operational continuity and uninterrupted service to our Customers.

In addition to the Seveso, Sinteco has a comprehensive package of permissions, including:


Sinteco participated in a working group organized by ASSICC, for the drafting of a "Guide to good practice for companies operating in the storage and distribution of food products" that has been validated by the Ministry of Health, in accordance with Regulation 852/2004.

In the areas of our facilities, dedicated to the storage of food and raw Active pharmaceutical materials, we implemented a manual for self-control for good hygiene practices, HACCP; this has been adapted to the needs of our customers based on the specific type of products stored.
The procedures cover comprehensively the entire process of product management, from the moment of their inbound to the warehouse till their shipment, highlighting the critical points to be monitored, with any corrective actions to be implemented.

Where required, the proper storage of products is guaranteed by controlled temperature storage areas, with constant recording of the temperature values.

Among others, Sinteco has specific permissions for food, also for animals and is therefore subject to the procedure Uvac, for sugar and for Livestock products.

The methodology and timing for cleaning the warehouse and the surrounding areas, as well as the Pest Control plans, are covered by special procedures and are constantly assessed through internal audits.


Sinteco was the first logistics company to be authorized for the management of hazardous chemicals.

In fact, already in 1992, as a sign of its sensitivity to the safety aspects, Sinteco obtained the “storage permit for hazardous chemicals” according to DPR 175, which was the predecessor of the Seveso Laws.

At present Sinteco has 45,000 square meters authorized under Seveso Law.

The storage areas are the most advanced on the market today in the logistics of dangerous chemicals: REI 180 walls, fire doors, containment basins, advanced smoke detection systems, foam extinguishing systems and sprinklers and internal water reserves for fire extinguishment systems.
Internal emergency teams, periodic inspections, operational procedures in place, periodic maintenance plans are providing additional guarantees of operational safety of our Customers products, for the authorities and stakeholders in general.

Audits conducted by our customers and local Authorities confirm the validity of our management.

  • ADR is the European Agreement concerning the international carriage of dangerous goods by road, which stands for "Accord Dangerouses Route", a synthesis of "Accord europeen relatif au transport international des marchandises Dangereuses par Route", or "European Agreement concerning the international carriage of dangerous goods by road". It was signed in Geneva on 30th September 1947 and ratified in Italy with Law no. 1839 of 12th August 1962: the agreement consists of a few pages (for a total of 17 articles, and a memorandum of understanding.
