The regulatory landscape for chemicals in textile supply chains continues to evolve. Just recently, for example, the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) published proposals to ban around 10,000 PFAS chemicals in the European Union, demonstrating how regulators are clamping down on chemicals of concern.
To help fashion sustainability teams navigate this challenging environment, Eurofins Softlines & Leather will run a one-hour webinar on 30 March.
During the webinar, Eurofins’ sustainable chemistry experts will present on:
- – What sustainable chemistry is and why it matters
- – The changing global regulatory landscape surrounding hazardous chemicals
- – The role and nature of Restricted Substance List (RSL) testing
- – The webinar will present an alternative to traditional RSLs – namely Eurofins’ newly developed Chem-ST service
- – This will include an explanation of the benefits of Chem-ST over standard RSL testing, including cost savings, faster turnaround time and increased chemical visibility for current and future regulations
- – The webinar will include a Q and A with Eurofins’ sustainable chemistry experts
The standard way to achieve chemical compliance for RSLs is to take a targeted snapshot of the product value chain. Eurofins Chem-STchemical smart testing is different. As a quantitative, revolutionary chemical assessment programme, Chem-STuses specially developed smart composite and smart testing principles that deliver strategic, risk-reducing, cost-effective, chemical risk management early in the product value chain.
This is ideal for customers seeking chemical detection to cleanse their textile and apparel supply chain of all potentially harmful chemicals; providing benefits beyond compliance and reducing the risk of supply chain employees being exposed to these chemicals.
As a proprietary programme, which doesn’t just look at a defined subset of restricted substances in a single comprehensive test package, Chem-ST also covers additional chemicals of concern that are not currently restricted.
