Where GNA® RSL is the strictest or joint strictest
NO REQUIREMENT
ND NONE DETECTED
* Organo Tin – GNA® requires an initial screening test for the presence of tin <0.1g/kg. If Tin is present above 0.1g/mg, then the concentration of Organo Tin must be tested and following thresholds apply:

    • Dibutyin (DBT) <1mg/kg
    • Dioctyltin (DOT) <1mg/kg
    • Monobutyltin <1mg/kg
    • Tirbutyltin <0.5mg/kg
    • Triphenyltin <0.5mg/kg
    • all other tri-substitued organo tin compounds <1mg/kg each

 

** PVC – Not legislated in textiles but common source of phthalates and cadium.
 *** Cadium – The GNA® non-detection limits for Lead and Cadium is slightly higher than some Brands’ RSL; this is due to the test protocol in the external laboratory and as can be seen the GNA® RSL is much lower than the legislation. If in doubt, the supplier must carry out further testing.
