The American Apparel and Footwear Association (AAFA) has published the 21st Edition of the Restricted Substance List (RSL) for Apparel and Footwear.

This Restricted Substance List (RSL) is intended to provide apparel and footwear companies with information related to regulations and laws that restrict or ban certain chemicals and substances in finished home textile, apparel, and footwear products around the world.

The RSL was developed by a special working group of the American Apparel & Footwear Association’s (AAFA’s) Environmental Task Force.

The RSL will be updated on a regular basis and will be supplemented with additional resources to help officials in these companies undertake responsible chemical management practices in the aforementioned finished products.
