NICCA CHEMICAL Group – Commitment to the ZDHC MRSL –
NICCA Positive List Ver. 3.4
NICCA Chemical Group promises to be responsible for environmental issues as a member of the textile manufacturing supply-chain.
ZDHC※1, a group of apparel brands has created MRSL※2 to eliminate hazardous chemicals from their supply chain.
Accordingly, NICCA has reviewed all products to publish a NICCA Positive List (the “List”) beginning in July, 2015 Ver. 1 which completely fulfill the ZDHC MRSL. The products on the List have no intentional addition of harmful substances restricted by ZDHC MRSL.
The List, Ver. 3.4, reflects the ZDHC MRSL Version 2.0 ※3 released on January, 2020. NICCA will update the List whenever ZDHC has updated the MRSL, NICCA produces new products and/or ceases producing any products. Update status is written on the last page of the List.
In addition, products on the List are general sales products. If products you are using are not on the List, please do not hesitate to ask a NICCA sales representative. Please be sure to inquire before ordering since production lead time varies depending on the product.
