Chemical compliance is a vital part of making the textile industry less environmentally damaging. Minimising the input of harmful chemicals into the supply chain and ensuring that no harmful chemicals are on the final products is good for everyone. It forms the important first step on process and product safety which must then be combined with best practice in the application of dyes and chemicals. Safety and the environment has to be embedded at the beginning of the design and procurement process and led through to the manufacturing process.
