South Korea Limits the Use of Substances in Children’s Textiles

South Korea would like to ban phthalates, formaldehyde, flame retardants, and metals from children’s clothing. The South Korean Agency for Technology and Standards (KATS) has now issued a law that goes into effect on June 4, 2016. The law obliges manufacturers to adhere to certain verified quality standards and threshold values for chemicals. The regulation applies to manufacturers who produce leather and textile clothing for children up to 13 years of age.
