What is the ZDHC MRSL V2.0?
The ZDHC MRSL V2.0 has been developed by an organisation commonly referred to as ZDHC. This tool is designed to support brands, retailers, suppliers, and manufacturers with a unified approach to managing chemicals during the processing of chemical formulations, within the apparel and footwear supply chain.
The ZDHC MRSL V2.0 contains a number of restricted substances which are segmented into two chapters:
Who is ZDHC?
ZDHC stands for Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals which is an organisation dedicated to eliminating hazardous chemicals and implementing sustainable chemicals in the leather, textile, and synthetics sectors.
The ZDHC Foundation is a multi-stakeholder organisation comprising of brands, manufacturers, chemical suppliers and solutions providers who collaboratively work towards implementing responsible chemical management across the global fashion and textile industry to detox supply chains and protect workers, consumers, and our planet.
To achieve this is ZDHC Roadmap to Zero Programme provides guidelines, platforms and solutions.
How does MRSL Testing relate to the Eurofins | Chem-MAP Family?
Chem-MAP is a ZDHC Accepted Certification Standard for ZDHC compliance. Commercial chemical formulations (from chemical suppliers) are extracted and tested for compliance to the ZDHC MRSL at the Eurofins | Chem-MAP analytical testing laboratory. The testing methods used are fully validated for each of the ZDHC listed MRSL chemicals.
Compliant products contribute towards chemical companies becoming Chem-MAP Certified; where applicable, chemical companies are issued with certification for their Chem-MAP certified products. Compliant chemical formulations, are uploaded onto the ZDHC Gateway and are awarded a Version 2, Level 1, 2, or 3 ZDHC compliance status, depending upon the Eurofins | Chem-MAP programme undertaken.
