Chemicals are everywhere in modern society, and apparel and footwear are no exception. There are numerous industry standards and requirements in place to help prevent potentially hazardous chemicals being used throughout the softlines’ supply chain, all to protect consumers and the environment. These standards and requirements are constantly evolving as the clothing industry continues to grow and adapt. It can be confusing keeping up with all of these regulatory changes for chemical management, but UL and AAFA are here to help.

During this webinar, Elisa Gavazza, UL’s Global Technical Lead for Consumer Product Chemicals, will discuss recent regulatory chemical updates for the EU market that will have major effects on the apparel and footwear industry, including revised CMR substances (carcinogenic, mutagenic or toxic to reproduction) and discussions on the Restricted Substances List (RSL).

The Consumer and Retail Services industry is constantly evolving through regulation, innovation and market expansions.  Keep pace with important trends and topics through our curated selection of educational webinars.
