The American Apparel & Footwear Association (AAFA) recently released the 21st edition of the Restricted Substance List (RSL), the industry’s chemical management resource listing banned or restricted chemicals and substances for finished apparel, footwear and home textile products around the world. The RSL identifies the most restrictive regulations worldwide.

The latest edition reflects recent changes in the global regulatory environment. The RSL is an open-industry resource available to both AAFA members and the global industry.

“AAFA’s RSL task force is focused on maintaining a resource that not only ensures safe chemical management, but ultimately protects our consumers. Chemical management is an important part of a responsible and compliant supply chain. As such, we continue to provide our RSL as an open-industry resource to the industry,” said AAFA president and chief executive officer Steve Lamar in a statement.

The latest edition covers 12 categories with more than 250 chemicals and is updated to reflect additions or changes to regulations and laws that restrict or ban certain chemicals in finished apparel, footwear, and home textile products.

The RSL is produced by AAFA’s RSL Task Force, which reviews and updates the list regularly to reflect the latest global regulatory changes.
