This document outlines the voluntary set of commitments on the responsible sales of corrosive substances. The intention is to restrict access to products containing acid and other corrosive substances which are being used as weapons to threaten or to attack people and inflict life-changing injuries.

The government is encouraging retailers to sign up to these commitments.

Major retailers who have signed up so far are: Wickes, B&Q, Screwfix, Wilko, The Co-op, Morrisons, Waitrose, Tesco and John Lewis.

If you are a retailer who wants to sign up, please contact: CorrosivesVoluntaryCommitments@homeoffice.gsi.gov.uk

Graphics for use by retailers on social media to raise awareness that you have signed up to these commitments are also available.
