Textile, Apparel & Footwear: Corrective and Preventive Actions for Your Chemical Management

August 31, 2018

Once you have implemented your chemical management programs and performed your wastewater analysis, the evaluation phase of the final results of your test report is important in order to assess the specific actions that you should take in order to achieve your Zero Discharge goal.

Results presented in a wastewater test report are a fundamental tool in order to understand the implementation status of your chemical management program as well as to plan Corrective Actions and Preventive Actions (CAPA).
CAPA is critical to eliminate the use of substances that could potentially contain chemical compounds listed in the MRSL. It is also essential to avoid the introduction/reintroduction of hazardous chemicals into manufacturing processes in the future.
