American Apparel and Footwear Association Restricted Substance List (AAFA RSL)
American Apparel and Footwear Association Restricted Substance List
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. It serves as a practical tool to help individuals in textile, apparel and footwear companies, and their suppliers - responsible for environmental compliance throughout the supply chain - to become more aware of various national and international regulations governing the amount of substances that are permitted in finished home textile, apparel, and footwear products.
