To drive implementation and ease usability, the ZDHC Roadmap to Zero Programme has released the electronic version of the ZDHC Manufacturing Restricted Substances List (ZDHC MRSL) – the ZDHC e-MRSL. The ZDHC MRSL lists chemical substances that should be banned from intentional use by the industry in the production of textile, apparel, leather and footwear.
 
The ZDHC MRSL applies to chemicals used in facilities that process materials and trim parts for use in the industry. Chemicals in the ZDHC MRSL include solvents, cleaners, adhesives, paints, inks, detergents, dyes, colourants, auxiliaries, coatings and finishing agents used during raw material production, wet-processing, maintenance, wastewater treatment, sanitation and pest control.
 
The first ZDHC MRSL (version 1.0) was released in 2014, along with Chemical Guidance Sheets and was updated in December 2015 (version 1.1), to include leather. ZDHC MRSL is now available in an electronic format rather than a static PDF document to support the global textile, apparel, leather and footwear industry by improving the use of chemicals in the value chain in an interactive way.
 
“We are excited to announce the kick-off of our online version of the ZDHC MRSL; it helps implementing the list in the industry and increases the user experience significantly, by providing a much easier search and browse functionality within the framework,” ZDHC executive director Frank Michel said in a media release.
 
With the ZDHC e-MRSL, users will be able to easily search for chemical substances, either by using the name of the substance or the CAS number. In the future, it will also be possible to filter for different criteria and to translate the tool into multiple languages. At the same time, it would still be possible to download the tool as a PDF file.
 
“With this new format, it is a lot easier for all parts of the value chain to search for substances that should not intentionally be used in the manufacturing process,” said Scott Echols, ZDHC programme director. “This tool will help us tremendously to support the implementation in facilities and will make it really easy to update the ZDHC MRSL in the future.” (RKS)
