Following best practice chemical compliance is advisable if brands, retailers and manufacturers want to achieve effective management of chemistry in product,
Faced with increasing pressure to identify and disclose potentially harmful chemicals in the products they are selling and to substitute chemicals of concern; responsible retailers are incorporating chemical management systems into their corporate sustainability strategies. So, what would a robust chemical management strategy be looking at?
Best Practice Chemical Compliance within the Chemical Management Strategy
There are a number of best practices in product chemicals management that can be applied to retailers that are beginning to develop their own systems. At Chem-MAP®, we would group these practices into the following categories:
1. Commitment to Chemical Safety
2. Chemical Management Policies
3. Testing for Restricted Chemicals
4. Supplier Management
5. Material Procurement
8. Future Proofing
To achieve a stable and conforming product the responsible management of chemicals is a critical element of sustainable business practice; retailers play a key role in leading the movement towards supply chain initiatives and policies that ensure hazardous chemicals are purged from the supply chain.
