- Kapisanang Kimika ng Pilipinas (KKP)
- Integrated Chemists of the Philippines (ICP)
- Organic Chemistry Teachers Association (OCTA)
- Philippine Association of Chemistry Teachers (PACT)

Through the five organizations, the PFCS is able to reach and provide service to professional chemists, chemical technicians, educators, students, and professionals in the allied disciplines.
