Important test methods to evaluate restricted substances in apparel

Abstract: Evaluation of restricted substances in apparel is necessary to ensure avoiding banned substances, and when using restricted substances with limits on products, they are in compliance with global laws and regulations within the markets for which products are targeted. The consequences of not meeting these limits for any apparel brands are significant, and could include monetary fines and publicized restrictions to manufacture specific products, which would have a detrimental impact on the reputation of the brands with consumers.
