AAFA includes PFAS restrictions for first time
The American Apparel & Footwear Association (AAFA) has included restrictions on per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) for the first time as part of its latest restricted substance list (RSL).
These PFAS restrictions are revealed as part of the AAFA’s 23rd update of its stringent RSL, which also features an appendix covering the US states whose laws require reporting of chemicals in children’s products, as well as European reporting rules.
The new RSL publishes PFAS limits of <100 ppm for total organic fluorine, which equates to California regulation A.B. 1817 that is effective January 1st, 2025, with RSL limits for PFAS then falling to <50 ppm two years later on January 1, 2027.
