Our Restricted Substance List (RSL) is based on stringent worldwide legislation or regulation. In addition, we've voluntarily included substances that may not be legislated but have been identified as hazardous to the worker, consumer or the environment.
All of our suppliers making products for Nike, Nike Affiliate, or licensee (any product with Converse, Hurley, or Nike logo) must comply with:
- Nike's RSL (manufacturing and packaging specific RSLs also)
- Nike's green and sustainable chemistry guidelines,
- and, Nike's material policies
Supply agreements reflect the need for RSL compliance in addition to the Code of Conduct, quality standard and other health and safety standards.
This information is subject to update. If requirements change, an effective date will be issued with time to allow suppliers to comply. The effective date will be listed in the RSL in the Scope Section.
All suppliers are required to test for restricted substances.
What do I need to test?
Sample selection and testing requirements can be found in the Restricted Substances List.
Additional guidance can be found in the RSL Implementation Guidance Document and the Frequently Asked Questions Document.
All materials and items supplied to Nike, Inc must comply with the all of the limits listed in the Nike RSL.
