Global regulatory requirements on harmful substances in textile and apparel

It is the manufacturer’s obligation to ensure that their product meets any general safety guidelines set out in industry standards that may exist. It is recommended that manufacturers maintain good records of distribution and appropriate testing which support compliance with these guidelines. In the event there are no specific industry standards that apply directly to the product in question, they are reminded that under general health and safety guidelines, the manufacturer must ensure that the materials used in their products are safe under any foreseeable conditions of use.
