Eliminating harmful chemicals from supply chains
Compliance with brand restricted chemical requirements is crucial to material manufacturing and product supply. In addition, brands and retailers are concerned about the upstream chemical inputs into materials and how they impact people and the environment. To achieve a conforming product, responsible management of chemicals is a key element of sustainable business practice.
Manufacturing Restricted Substances List (MRSL) testing is a critical component of chemical risk management, focusing upstream in the supply chain beyond Restricted Substance Lists (RSL) testing. MRSL testing through Eurofins | Chem-MAP or Eurofins MTS minimises RSL failures, providing a long-term financial benefit for your business and reducing chemical risk to your customers and others in the supply chain.
Testing to the MRSL
ZDHC MRSL testing of chemical formulations involves specialized chemical extraction and clean-up processes dependent upon the product formulation.
Laboratory specialists at Eurofins I Chem-MAP have developed the testing of chemicals to an MRSL with validated test methods used in the Chem-MAP programme. The test methods are used to determine the number of individual chemicals within a supplied chemical formulation, against those listed on the Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC) MRSL.
Eurofins | Chem-MAP and Eurofins MTS are approved by ZDHC to provide MRSL testing as part of the Chemical Programme. However, Eurofins can also carry out bespoke MRSL testing outside the standard ZDHC Chemical Programme against a customer’s own MRSL list if requested.
