Chemical Management Module

The LWG Chemical Management Module (CMM) is a voluntary additional module, but will ultimately be incorporated as a compulsory new section in the next full update of the LWG Environmental Stewardship Protocol (Version 7.0). The anticipated launch of protocol 7.0 will be no sooner than late 2019.

The following acronyms are used in the Chemical Management Module:

MRSL Manufacturing Restricted Substance List
RSL Restricted Substance List
GHS Globally Harmonised System
ZDHC Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals
