bluesign technologies has decided to open the criteria of its standard. The result of the development work for years of this unique and holistic standard is now public on our website.

The challenge today:
It is an obligation for all companies in the textile chain to regard and manage product safety and environmental aspects. Many companies have learned from their own attempts that this can be a quite challenging task, since they have to keep track of a lot of rules and regulations for every market they serve. Moreover, these regulations change from time to time. Especially for companies like textile manufacturers things are getting more and more complex since they additionally have to cope not only with Restricted Substances Lists (RSL) from Brands and Retailers but also with REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemical substances - new European Community Regulation on chemicals and their safe use) and CPSIA (US Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act).
.
The unique solution for success - the bluesign system:
The bluesign standard tackles the problem at its roots. Instead of focusing on finished product testing, all input streams – from raw materials, to chemical components, to resources – are analyzed with a sophisticated “Input Stream Management” process. Prior to production, every component is assessed and receives a rating based on its ecotoxicological impact eliminating potentially harmful substances before production even begins.

The bluesign standard is built around five principles: Resource productivity, consumer safety, air emission, water emission and occupational health and safety. It is designed to provide solutions concerning “Environment, Health and Safety” (EHS) issues along the entire textile manufacturing chain. A key aspect of the bluesign standard is never to compromise on product functionality, quality or design.

Applications for the textile industry:
bluesign technologies offers three premium applications: the bluesign bluetool, the bluesign bluefinder and the bluesign blueguide. These three applications work closely together to ensure that textiles are manufactured using the least but most environmentally friendly resources available. They were developed to meet the specific needs of each level along the textile manufacturing chain. The easyto- use applications are web based and can be accessed worldwide.
