Revision BSSL

bluesign technologies regularly revises limits and usage bans for chemical substances that are published in the bluesign® system substances list (BSSL) Consumer safety limits.

The revised BSSL comes into effect from July 01, 2016. It replaces the bluesign® system substances list (BSSL) Consumer safety limits, version 5.1 from November 01, 2015. For all bluesign® system partners the implementation of the revised sections shall take place until July 01, 2017 at the latest.
