ZDHC conformance manual is “an important next step”

The Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC) Foundation has released a manual that makes it easier for companies involved in the production of textiles and footwear to assess the conformance of the chemicals they use to ZDHC’s manufacturing restricted substances list (MRSL).

The organisation has said the manual, which it calls ZDHC MRSL Conformance Guidance, is intended for use by chemical suppliers, brands, material suppliers, product finishers, and certification bodies. 

“The release of the MRSL Conformance Guidance is an important next step to deliver our Roadmap to Zero Programme” said ZDHC executive director Frank Michel. “This manual supports chemical suppliers, brands, manufacturers, certification bodies and other intermediaries by finding and/or creating ZDHC MRSL conformant chemical formulations.”

ZDHC plans to use “third-party certification systems” to provide a measure of conformance and invited any certification bodies interested in becoming ZDHC-accepted certifiers to review the requirements set out in the manual.

The ZDHC MRSL Conformance Guidance manual can be viewed online.
