General
H&M has with concern for the health of customers as well as for the environment and working conditions, established Chemical Restrictions for all H&M products. H&M Part Part Part Part Part Part Part Chemical Restrictions consist of seven parts: 1: Apparel/Accessories/Footwear/Interior Products 2: Food Contact Products 3: Cosmetic Products 4: Toys 5: Electrical and Electronic Products 6: Packaging 7: Restricted Substances in Production

The Apparel/Accessories/Footwear/Interior Products and Food Contact Products are divided into materials. The restrictions in Part 1 also applies to Part 2, 4 and 5 products. If the product is sold in a packaging, it must also comply with part 6. All products must comply with Part 7. Each limit in H&M Chemical Restrictions is valid for homogeneous parts of the concerned product. Individual restricted substances with CAS no are specified in Appendix A. Test methods are found in Appendix B. All details on your product must comply with H&M Chemical Restrictions, see example below for a padded jacket, a water bottle and a lip gloss. The examples do not claim to be complete.

Apparel/Accessories/Footwear/Interior Products
Fabric & lining: Follow Textile restrictions in Part 1 Painted zipper & press buttons: Follow Metal restrictions in Part 1 for the metal. Follow the Plastic, Rubber, Paints & Surface coating restrictions in Part 1 for the paint. Drawstring, stoppers & possible placement print: Follow Plastic, Rubber, Paints & Surface coating restrictions in Part 1 Padding: Follow Fusing, Padding, Feather and Down restrictions in Part 1

Food Contact Products


Lid and bottle: Follow Plastic, Rubber, Paints & Surface coating restrictions in Part 1 PE lid: Follow PE plastic restrictions in Part 2 PP bottle: Follow PP plastic restrictions in Part 2

Cosmetic Products
Lip gloss: Follow restrictions for cosmetic products in Part 3. Lid and bottle: Follow restrictions for packaging in Part 6.

Commitment
When signing H&M Standard Purchase Conditions Compliance Commitment, the H&M supplier commits to comply with H&M Chemical Restrictions. It is the suppliers responsibility to inform all their downstream suppliers and subcontractors about the content of the restrictions and to assure compliance. By signing H&M Standard Purchase Conditions Compliance Commitment, each supplier acknowledges that H&M reserves the right to: Check any product, any part of production and/or packaging, by any listed/appropriate method, at any time or stage of production. Cancel the ordered product or, if already delivered, return the goods if the product, production and/or packaging do not correspond to the restrictions. Hold the manufacturer/exporter responsible for any damage caused by the ordered product if the product, production and/or packaging do not correspond to the restrictions. Receive the complete product information and Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) about all products (dyes, colorants, solvents, chemicals etc.) included in the production of a specific order and/or batch. In the case of contradictory test result, H&Ms test result will prevail.

More Information and Guidelines

CAS no cfu Chemical Abstracts Service number, an identification number for chemicals in this database. Colony forming units. The content of bacteria, mould and yeast in a product is measured by counting the number of colonies formed in the sample. This is the unit for this counting. Colour Index number Centilong centiStokes, which is the same as 1mm2/s. This is the unit used for kinematic viscosity. Good Manufacturing Practice Uniform composition throughout, i.e. a material that can not be mechanically disjointed into different materials. International Unit. A unit used when measuring vitamins. Describes how fast a fluid is spread on a flat surface in relation to its mass, i.e. weight. Refers to any sensory property of a product, including smell, taste, colour and feel. Parts per million, which is the same as mg/kg. Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and restriction of Chemicals The lowest concentration at which an analyte is reported. Specific Migration Limit in food or in food simulants. Total Specific Migration Limit in food or in food simulant. SML(T) is the maximum permitted amount of a given substance originating from the release of several given substances from a material or article into food or a food stimulant.

Appendix C Permitted Colorants in Cosmetic Products


All substances listed below are permitted as colorants in Cosmetic Products under the specific restrictions and requirements laid down.
The numbers under the column Field of application mean: 1) 2) 3) Colouring agents permitted in all cosmetics products. Colouring agents permitted in all cosmetics products, except those intended for use in the area of eye (eye lid, eye lashes and area below the eye down to the cheek bone). Colouring agents permitted only in externally applied cosmetic products. They should not intend to come into contact neither with the mucous membrane (includes the intimate/genital area and the oral cavity of the mouth) nor with the lips. Colouring agents permitted only in externally applied cosmetic products, except those intended for use in the area of eye. They should not intend to come into contact neither with the mucous membrane nor with the lips. Field of Application41 1 CI 10316 43 CI 12085 43 Yellow Red 2 3 4 X X See also 21 CFR 74.2707a. All lakes are permitted as the ordinary colour, see 21 CFR 82.2051. Maximum level in the finished cosmetic product should not exceed 3.0%. Also permitted in lip products at a maximum level of 3.0% in the finished product. See also 21 CFR 74.2336. All lakes are permitted as the ordinary colour, see 21 CFR 82.1051. See also 21 CFR 74.2304. All lakes are permitted as the ordinary colour, see 21 CFR 82.1051 and 21 CFR 82.51. See also 21 CFR 74.2254.

Permitted colorants are named by their CI no. or other commonly used denomination. The lakes and salts of the permitted colorants, using substances not prohibited in Annex II or not regulated in Annex V of EU Cosmetic Regulation, are also permitted except if otherwise specified under the headline Other requirements. If there is no cross in the columns below the headline Field of application appropriate restrictions and conditions of use will be found under the headline Other requirements. Colorants whose number is preceded by the letter E in accordance with the EU Directive of 1962 concerning foodstuffs and colouring matters must fulfil the purity requirements laid down in those Directives. They continue to be subject to the general criteria set out in Annex III to the 1962 Directive concerning colouring matters where the letter E has been deleted there from. See also EU Cosmetic Regulation Annex IV for more information about the limitations and purity requirements in Europe for each colorant specified above. The insoluble Barium, Strontium and Zirconium lakes, salts and pigments of these colorants shall also be permitted. They must pass test for insolubility, which will be determined by the procedure laid down in Article 8 in the EU Cosmetic Regulation. This colorant has two different names as a certified colorant in USA. Therefore this colorant has two different criteria regarding purity, other requirements, limitations and field of application.
