March 16, 2015

UL Wastewater Onsite Assessments and Testing Based on ZDHC Principles

To help minimize potential damage to surrounding ecosystems and communities from harmful wastewater discharge, UL offers wastewater onsite assessments and testing solutions based on the Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC) principles. The onsite wastewater assessment examines water use, wastewater management systems, and chemicals management systems in place to identify related risks in order to mitigate and establish supply chain best practices.

UL’s wastewater testing services utilize a methodical, scientific, and facts-based approach to determine chemicals present in a company’s supply chain. The wastewater testing process uses state-of-the-art labs in Europe and Asia Pacific to safeguard against banned and high risk chemicals and ensure partners comply with company requirements. UL specializes in testing for the 11 priority chemicals of concern identified by the Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC) group.

Training and Advisory Services

UL offers a spectrum of education services for all steps in the supply chain. Our experts across the globe have the capacity to custom design and deliver trainings in multiple languages.  UL’s trainings are interactive with case studies and exercises where possible.

The UL team advises clients on how to cope with ZDHC initiative by providing comprehensive training on common textile production processes and associated use of hazardous chemicals, and guidance on occurrence of 11 priority substances, use of Manufacturing Restricted Substances List (MRSL) etc.
