SGS Helps Clothing Manufacturers Ensure Compliance with Global PFAS and BPA Regulations

SGS, the world’s leading testing, inspection and certification company, has published a Consumer Compact article looking at the issue of harmful substances such as PFAS and BPA being found in clothing.  

Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) and bisphenol A (BPA) are increasingly being regulated around the world. Recent studies in North America have found levels of both of these toxic chemicals in clothing that exceed regulatory requirements.

SGS’s Consumer Compact article looks at the risks associated with PFAS and BPA, the results of the studies and the options available to manufacturers and suppliers looking to operate effectively in competitive markets.
