BP CHEMICALS INC. ACHIEVES ISO 9002 REGISTRATION

 CLEVELAND, April 26 /PRNewswire/ -- BP Chemicals Inc. today announced that it has achieved ISO 9002 registration for the majority of its operations. The company recently received word from the British Standards Institute that operations in Lima, Ohio; Green Lake, Texas; and Cleveland have been formally registered.
 Areas covered by the registration include manufacturing, distribution and commercial operations for acrylonitrile (AN) at all sites, and for acetonitrile (ACN) at Green Lake and Cleveland. Aromatics marketing and distribution in Cleveland were also registered.
 AN is a base chemical for fibers, plastics and synthetic rubber. ACN is used by the pharmaceutical industry to produce insulin.
 "Achieving ISO registration demonstrates to our customers and communities that we care about the products we make, and that our businesses are operating in a professional, competent manner," said Bob Mesel, BP Chemicals Inc. chief executive.
 ISO, or International Organization for Standardization, is based in Switzerland and recognized by more than 90 countries, including the U.S. ISO standards were developed with worldwide input from businesses and organizations with the goal of achieving uniform, high-quality industry practice standards.
 "ISO-registered processes will inevitably achieve clear marketing advantages because of quality improvement and the image of being superior to nonregistered processes," Mesel said. "I believe that quality system registration will become necessary to compete in the world markets."
 BP Chemicals Inc. began preparing ISO about 18 months ago. Compliance auditors visited company sites February 4-12.
 Based in Cleveland, BP Chemicals Inc. is the world leader in AN technology with 73 licensees in 21 countries. The company is also the world's leading AN producer with world class plants in Lima, Ohio and Green Lake, Texas.
