AFIRM Supplier Toolkit

Suite of Tools | Free | Mar 17, 2017

In response to feedback received from members of its global supply chain, The Apparel and Footwear International RSL Management (AFIRM) Working Group has developed this revised and updated Supplier RSL Toolkit as part of its continuing mission “to reduce the use and impact of harmful substances in the apparel and footwear supply chain.” The Toolkit is specifically geared toward the needs of the apparel and footwear supply chain, including raw material & chemical suppliers, mills, dye houses, trim & packaging suppliers, screen-printers, factories, and any other entity involved in the manufacturing of apparel and footwear finished goods. Notable additions to the toolkit are several appendices, including an extensive “Detailed Chemical Guidance Document” (Appendix F) and “RSL Corrective Action Examples” (Appendix E). Both references provide specific technical information to help eliminate or reduce restricted substances in finished goods to meet brand RSL requirements. While this toolkit is primarily focused on the elimination of restricted substances from finished products, extensive information about chemical discharge into wastewater, air emissions, and solid waste is available in the Chemical Guidance Document.
