On February 3, 2021, the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) enacted a new requirement on textile articles, Annex XVII to REACH, in which APEO substances are restricted. Since implementation, many brands and their suppliers have failed the requirement. 

APEO is a substance of concern for a variety of reasons (e.g., impacts on fish and invertebrates and could be harmful for humans). Join QIMA's webinar to learn how you can avoid APEO in your textile products to ensure regulatory compliance.

Attendees of this webinar will learn:

  • What APEO is and where it comes from.
  • APEO chemical management on textile products.
  • APEO failure analysis for supply chains.

Open industry. All apparel and footwear industry professionals, regardless of AAFA membership, are encouraged to participate.
