AMSTERDAM - Chemical management specialist ZDHC has announced the latest version of its Manufacturing Restricted Substances List (MRSL) which includes new restrictions on all PFAS used for textile, footwear and leather treatments.

PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances) - dubbed "forever chemicals" for their durability in the environment - are used in water- and stain-proof coatings for garments and have been linked with major health risks including liver damage, thyroid disease and cancer.

The updated ZDHC MRSL Version 3.0 will be published by ZDHC on its Roadmap to Zero website on 1st November with a transition period of 12 months for effective implementation by all stakeholders.
