Focus on Quality

Guardian Chemicals Inc. believes QUALITY is best defined in terms of People, Product and Service. Our commitment to quality was demonstrated when we became the first ever specialty chemical company to qualify for the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) Quality Control Certification under specification Z.299-4-1979. We have quality management system that has been certified to ISO 9001 since 2008.

For Guardian Chemicals Inc., quality is an ongoing process and we owe our success to resolving problems and providing meaningful service based on our customer's needs. Our mission is to allow continual improvement to our products and service and to have our name represent quality to our vendors, customers and ourselves. As a result there are a number of raw materials, such as those on the C.E.P.A toxics list, that we will not utilize in our products due to their environment, health and safety concerns. Simply, we provide leading edge environmental chemistry and our commitment to EH&S is clear by the third party certifications we have to prove it.

Quality Policy


Guardian Chemicals regards environmental stewardship to be a core responsibility. We have always taken a proactive approach to develop products that pose minimal environmental risk. We support this commitment to the environment with our certification to ISO 14001 (Environmental Management System).

Guardian Chemicals Inc. has completed the necessary product development and formal registration process required for Green Seal™ certification on our E Series (2009) products. Our objective is to provide our customers with an environmentally responsible option that meets standards set by Green Seal™.

Health & Safety

Guardian Chemicals holds that there is nothing more important than the safety of our customers and staff. It is because of this belief that we have been successfully certificated in OHSAS 18001, an international standard designed for Health & Safety Management Systems. Combining OHSAS 18001, ISO 9001 (Manufacturing) and ISO 14001 (Environment) ensures that we are providing the safest, most effective and environmentally conscious products in the industry.

Guardian Chemicals has also received an Alberta COR (Certificate of Recognition) for our health and safety programs, specifically those that assist in injury reduction.
