Where GNA® RSL is the strictest or joint strictest
* 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. For other brands, please check their RSL Vs the GNA test reports on the GNA website
