Chemical Management & RSL Support

Chemical management support

Chemical management can be a complex area with different global legislation to comply with. In order to retail compliant products, it is essential to manage chemicals correctly throughout the supply chain.

At Eurofins | BLC, we provide our members with a complete chemical management and restricted substance list (RSL) support package, consisting of:

  • Specification support on restricted substances
  • Guidance on test failure (Eurofins | BLC reports) and corrective action
  • Guidance on risk assessing products
  • International legislation advice
  • Guidance on understanding chemical risk

 

Specification support on restricted substances

The only way to ensure consistent quality, safety and performance of products is to set realistic specifications that are coupled with a sensible and balanced testing regime.

At Eurofins | BLC, we can create and review current chemical and material specifications of our members.

Eurofins | BLC Members are also free to use specifications from the Eurofins | BLC database that target both chemical and material requirements across a range of products and material types.

A RSL is an integral part of most brands’ chemical management system; in today’s evolving regulatory landscape it is virtually impossible, and in many cases a high risk, for a brand to function without one.

At Eurofins | BLC, we can support our members by reviewing and updating their RSLs, so that they are consistent with the latest legislative changes; eco labels; and brand/retailer decisions which may go beyond compliance.

Eurofins | BLC also have a comprehensive RSL available to members only. Contact us today to request access to this document.
