Bluesign is holding consultations to update its Bluesign system criteria


Bluesign takes a holistic look at environmental health and safety in the textile industry with strict criteria placed on input streams, raw materials, chemical formulations along with resource use. For the first time, Bluesign is holding consultations with both external and internal stakeholders to update its Bluesign system criteria. The consultation which has been extended from system partners, to NGOs, trade associations, and various textile industry authorities has also been extended to September 30, 2019.
A draft version of the updated criteria is still available on the Bluesign website. The latest revision includes language refinements for better understanding, specific changes in content, and the development of new criteria to ensure the Bluesign System is ‘better aligned’ with the textile industry and related areas.
Bluesign regularly revises limits and usage bans for chemical substances that are published in the Bluesign system substances list (BSSL) for consumer safety limits to produce a comprehensive restricted substance list (RSL) for download that brands can use to improve chemical management in their supply chains.
