The ZDHC Foundation has released the ZDHC CMS Framework. A chemical management system (CMS) is paramount to worker safety and reduces environmental impact in the community and the broader environment. The ZDHC CMS Framework provides the textile, apparel and footwear industries with a united base to work from, that can be incorporated in a wider management system, such as an Environmental Management System (EMS).
The CMS Framework is part one of the two-part structure of the ZDHC Chemical Management System. One part is the ZDHC CMS Framework that lays out the minimum components of a CMS. The other is the ZDHC CMS Technical Industry Guide, which will cover the implementation of a CMS in the supply chain.
The ZDHC CMS Framework will be a key support for the entire industry as organizations along the value chain adapt to the pressing need for good chemical management and strive to protect their business into the future.
