13 May 2013 | News | Source: TEXbase Inc
TEXbase, a leading provider of web-based compliance, quality and materials management software solutions today announced RSL GuardianSM, a service developed for brands and consumer product companies to manage Restricted Substance Lists (RSL) across the global supply chain.
RSL GuardianSM is purchased on a standalone basis or as an integrated component of the TEXbase solution. The TEXbase solution is built to efficiently address compliance, quality and materials management, for apparel, footwear and consumer products. Unlike document sharing systems and alternative solutions, TEXbase uniquely traces compliance and quality from raw materials to finished product.
RSL GuardianSM is a managed service with dynamic RSL libraries containing lists from industry associations and U.S. States. RSL Guardian allows clients to share libraries, create standards and consistently test objects or products through their supply, production and sales chain. Flexible pick-and-choose standards are securely shared by Brands with vendors and labs using the TEXbase real-time collaboration network. This allows brand, vendors and labs to collaborate, manage and test against standards and compliance requirements.
Using RSL GuardianSM is an easy, click and run process. The system's automated update and management capabilities minimize the burden of ongoing management of this process for users. The system features electronic signature capability and documentation and is supported by dashboards allowing TEXbase customers to easily review the status of compliant objects and products.
Wayne Huyard, President, TEXbase:
“Industry associations, larger brands and state jurisdictions have published lists of Restricted Substances that are comprehensive and complex. Consumer products companies are challenged to apply these lists and define and communicate their requirements for managing the chemical content of their materials, components and finished products. The pressures and requirements related to product compliance are mounting and the risks are real. RSL GuardianSM removes the challenge of managing, developing and maintaining RSL standards.”
