The Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC) Roadmap to Zero Programme has announced that TUV Rheinland is its newest ZDHC Accepted Certification Testing Standard for ZDHC MRSL (ZDHC Manufacturing Restricted Substances List) Conformance. TÜV Rheinland is a global independent testing, inspections, certifications service provider, based in Germany.

Since September 2017, ZDHC has certified ten ZDHC Accepted Certification Standards that can all indicate ZDHC MRSL Conformance on different levels. Now, TÜV Rheinland becomes the newest certifier and can test to certify chemical formulations with ZDHC MRSL Level 1 conformance on the ZDHC Gateway - Chemical Module, according to a press release.

“We are delighted to have TÜV Rheinland as our newest ZDHC MRSL Accepted Certification Standard. It’s great to see that so many organisations have applied to become ZDHC Accepted Certification Standards and that we now have ten organisations,” ZDHC programme director Scott Echols said.

“Receiving ZDHC approval for our MRSL testing programme marks a milestone for TÜV Rheinland and for our customers. It opens the door to lucrative yet increasingly regulated markets for both manufacturers and users of chemical formulations in the textile and leather industry, by ensuring dyestuffs, pigments, and auxiliaries are ZDHC MRSL-compliant. This mitigates potential risks and downstream impacts. We look forward to working with our peers to further engage the chemical manufacturers,” Mohammed Dkhissi, VP for softlines and key accounts, TÜV Rheinland said. (GK)
