About

The textile and footwear industry is overwhelmed by chemical constraints in the past decade, such as nationwide chemical regulations and voluntary industrial standards. The introduction of the EU REACH regulation marks the implementation of chemical regulations around the world, while the NGO initiated ‘DETOX’ campaign drives the formation of the Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC) group followed by the development of Manufacturing Restricted Substances List (MRSL) and subsequent chemical guidelines. The idea of finished product testing is shifting up the supply chain into raw materials / wastewater testing, involving on-site inspections and audit programs. In order to help you understand the current market challenge, this seminar aims to provide an overview of zero discharge requirement, Joint Roadmap and timelines, and the recent development from the industry, as well as the SGS holistic solution to support you to become a frontrunner in the industry.
