GENEVA - The Strategic Approach to International Chemicals Management (SAICM) has published a policy brief that addresses chemicals of concern in textiles, among other products, and efforts to minimise their impacts on human health and the environment.

Entitled 'Understanding Chemicals in Products', the policy brief is part of a Global Environment Facility (GEF)-funded project on ‘Global Best Practices on Emerging Chemical Policy Issues of Concern under SAICM’.

The brief focuses on textiles, as well as the toys, electronics and building materials sectors. It notes that transparency about chemicals in global supply chains has been an issue since 2009, leading to action such as the UN Environment Programme’s Chemicals in Products (CiP) programme.
