The American Apparel & Footwear Association (AAFA) published a Vietnamese translation of 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. The release of this translated RSL coincides with the AAFA International Product Safety and Restricted Substances Conference being held November 10, 2010 in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

“Because of our industry's global supply chain, it is critical that the U.S. apparel and footwear industry works collaboratively with partners all over the world,” said AAFA President and CEO Kevin M. Burke. “By translating the AAFA Restricted Substances List into Vietnamese, we can more effectively communicate international product safety and chemical management requirements to the fastest growing sourcing alternative to China.”

This newly translated version 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 other languages, including Chinese and Spanish, to better serve more segments of the supply chain.
