Chem-MAP is a new, innovative process for verifying MRSL compliance of supplied chemical formulations to ZDHC conformance level 1 and level 3.
Chem-MAP has been developed by BLC Leather Technology Centre Ltd. in partnership with Peter Gregory from Vert-Tex and works through a preventative approach which ensures that materials and products are made using responsible chemistry. To achieve this, Chem-MAP works with all organisations in the supply chain including chemical companies, manufacturers, brands and retailers.
How does the BLC Chem-MAP Programme engage the materials supply chain?
The BLC Chem-MAP Programme is split into four divisions:
c-MAP for chemical companies to gain ZDHC approved certification through Chem-MAP
Become a ZDHC level 1 or level 3 approved chemical supplier through the completion of Chem-MAP audit and testing modules on the c-MAP route. c-MAP supports verification of chemicals for manufacture and production on the ZDHC Gateway.
m-MAP for manufacturers of materials to become Chem-MAP approved
Join the Chem-MAP programme as a supplier of materials or products. Become a Chem-MAP Guardian through online training modules, chemical inventory management and chemical management audits on the m-MAP route.
b-MAP for brands & retailers to become Chem-MAP engaged
Brands and retailers can engage with the Chem-MAP programme to support chemical management objectives. The b-MAP route provides education, guidance and policy advice in addition to supply chain management support.
MRSL testing for brands, retailers, manufacturers and suppliers
Test your chemicals for MRSL compliance through MRSL testing. MRSL testing is carried out by BLC’s internationally accredited testing laboratory to a fully validated set of methods available to test for all MRSL listed substances.

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).
