The Changes

Additional Chemicals

Many problematic chemical substances have been added to the list of restricted substances, including restrictions for new substrates: rubber, foams and adhesives. Efforts have been made to align with the industry and cover more ‘hazardous’ substances. 

New Chapters

Two new chapters have been added to version 2.0.This increases the scope of the ZDHC MRSL, while helping the industry to prepare for future restricted chemicals.

1.  ZDHC MRSL Candidate List

It can be the case that a chemical substance meets the criteria to be listed on the ZDHC MRSL, but safer alternatives are not yet available at scale. Where this is the case, the ZDHC MRSL Candidate List supports the industry by offering visibility over potential future restricted substances, giving important time to innovate and prepare in advance. 

 “ZDHC proves to be an organisation, with ambitious goals. We acknowledge the huge effort it takes to identify intentionally used substances, and we appreciate the intent that candidate substances will be reviewed in the ZDHC MRSL 3.0. We look forward to continuing this productive cooperation in the coming months and years”
Volker Schroeder, TEGEWA


2.  Archived substances

Archived substances are those which have previously been used in the industry, and are no longer in use. These substances have also been added to version 2.0. 

 “In addition to adding many problematic chemical substances onto the second version of the ZDHC MRSL, the independent MRSL Advisory Council, which I have the privilege to chair, has developed a clear, transparent process for the objective evaluation of chemical substances. The result is a clear set of standards where the main ZDHC MRSL is relevant to industry needs, but where we have a mechanism for signalling future restrictions and a way of ensuring that harmful chemicals, which have fallen out of use, cannot make an unwelcome return.” 
Phil Patterson, Chair of the MRSL Advisory Council

Transition Period

As with the introduction of any updated guideline, a transition period has been provided to put the latest version into action. The chemical industry will have a transition period of 12 months to implement ZDHC MRSL V2.0. 

 “During the ZDHC MRSL V2.0 update process, we were able to discuss the impact of such an update for facilities. As all the relevant steps have been considered by ZDHC, we feel confident the industry can adopt the ZDHC MRSLV 2.0. The alignment between the different stakeholders should enable the industry to implement it faster than before.”
