AAFA publishes restricted substances list

The American Apparel & Footwear Association (AAFA) published the seventh edition of the AAFA Restricted Substances List (RSL), covering apparel, footwear, and home textiles. The list, which has become a go-to industry resource, together with a growing set of other chemical management tools, can be downloaded for free at the AAFA Web site.

“Supply chain visibility is a top concern for the U.S. apparel and footwear industry and our consumers,” said AAFA President and CEO Kevin M. Burke. “Now in its seventh edition, the AAFA Restricted Substances List has emerged as a key component in our industry's robust chemical management strategy. By removing doubt and confusion from product safety concerns within the supply chain, the AAFA RSL assists the industry as it navigates complicated domestic and international regulations to remain competitive in the global marketplace.”

“The AAFA RSL continues to provide clear information that helps keep our global industry compliant and competitive around the world,” said AAFA Environmental Committee Chairman John Eapen, Vice President of Environmental, Health & Safety at America & Efird, Inc. “We extend our gratitude to the AAFA Environmental Committee, the members of the RSL Task Force, and our RSL peer review group for their time and significant contributions to update this important list.”

This newest addition of the AAFA RSL will be highlighted at AAFA's upcoming International Product Safety and Restricted Substances Conference in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam on November 10, 2010. Among the many industry experts on the agenda, U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commissioner Nancy Nord will provide the conference keynote address. Please visit the AAFA Web site to register for this program.

The AAFA RSL can be accessed on the AAFA Web site by clicking here. With such broad adoption of the AAFA RSL across the global apparel and footwear industry, AAFA will soon release the RSL in Chinese, Vietnamese, and Spanish to better serve more segments of the supply chain.

The AAFA RSL, first released in the summer of 2007, is the first of its kind. The list covers chemicals and other substances whose presence in a product is restricted through a government regulation or law. The list identifies the most restrictive iteration of that regulation world wide. Every six months, the publication is reviewed, updated, and the latest version is made available for free on the AAFA Web site.
