ZDHC accepted NimkarTek as the first testing laboratory to indicate Level 1 conformance with the ZDHC MRSL.

Recently, the ZDHC Roadmap to Zero Programme announced that NimkarTek Detox Laboratory (NDL) joined ECO PASSPORT by OEKO-TEX, ToxServices Full Materials Disclosure (ToxFMD), BLC Chem-MAP and the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) as a ZDHC Accepted provider of services to indicate conformance to the ZDHC MRSL. 

NimkarTek analytical test reports may now be used by chemical suppliers to indicate Level 1 conformance of their products to the ZDHC Manufacturing Restricted Substances List (MRSL) on the ZDHC Gateway - Chemical Module.

NimkarTek is already one of the ZDHC Accredited Training Providers and we are happy to also have them on board as the first Accepted Testing Laboratory to indicate Level 1 conformance with the ZDHC MRSL,” says Scott Echols, ZDHC Programme Director.

To accelerate the global impact of the organisation, ZDHC decided right from the beginning not to develop its own certification system for ZDHC MRSL conformant chemistry, but to leverage existing certification bodies instead.

To achieve the goal of ZDHC, NimkarTek believes that testing of input chemical inventory for ZDHC MRSL substances is a critical step that a manufacturing facility needs to take,” says Ullhas Nimkar, MD and Chairman, NimkarTek. With this in mind, we have set up the NimkarTek Detox Laboratory and committed to help the Industry achieve Zero Discharge through our services.
