Join the m-MAP Programme as a supplier of materials or products to become an ‘Approved Manufacturer of Materials’. The m-MAP Programme provides your company with a structured award through the completion of online training modules, chemical inventory management and chemical management audits.
Brands and retailers can show consumers their commitment to responsible chemical management through the b-MAP Programme and achieve ‘Associate Brand and Retailer’ status. b-MAP supports ZDHC objectives through education, guidance, policy advice and supply chain management support.
Achieve ZDHC Conformance Level 1 through MRSL testing at Eurofins | BLC’s accredited laboratory to fully validated methods, that incorporate all MRSL listed substances. MRSL testing verifies the chemical composition of formulations to the ZDHC MRSL or customers’ own MRSLs for international chemical compliance.
Watch the Chem-MAP video to see how this new ZDHC approved MRSL verification programme is engaging all organisations in the leather, textile and synthetic materials supply chains to drive the use of responsible chemistry in the manufacture of consumer products.
Chem-MAP is a preventative system that protects businesses, workers, consumers and the environment, and rewards businesses that engage through certification, approved status, training and technical support. Chem-MAP offers three programmes which are specifically designed for chemical companies (c-MAP Programme), manufacturers (m-MAP Programme) and brands and retailers (b-MAP Programme).
