Boardriders, Inc. (including its affiliated companies and brands) is committed to doing business in an
ethical and socially and environmentally responsible manner to ensure that all of the products sold
by its brands are safe for consumers, compliant with all applicable chemical requirements,
restrictions and guidelines wherever sold around the globe, are manufactured in environments safe
and secure for workers, and are environmentally friendly. Boardriders strives to work with supply
chain partners (including vendors, suppliers and factories (‘Suppliers”) committed to these principles.
To support these objectives, Boardriders maintains a Restricted Substance List (“RSL”) specific to its
products, which is set forth herein. Boardriders expects the products it purchases from Suppliers to
meet global standards for Restricted Substances. Boardriders also expects its Suppliers to make the

· Ensure that the factories used have adopted and fully implemented a chemical management
· Ensure that all materials, components and finished products are in full compliance with the
global restricted substances requirements where the products will be sold
· Map the sources of all materials and components in products for full visibility
· Obtain most recent test reports, certifications and/or chemical safety data sheets from
· Test high risk materials
· Avoid high risk materials whenever possible
· Reformulate or replace materials not in compliance
Boardriders does not expect Suppliers to test every material, but rather to consider material risk,
source from trusted partners, and test as needed to ensure full compliance with this RSL.
This document supersedes and replaces all previous versions with regards to the specific contents
herein. This document will be updated from time to time by Boardriders in its discretion to ensure
adherence to emerging and evolving regulations and standards.
Boardriders’ regional offices will, from time to time, randomly select products for testing to ensure
compliance with one or more of the specific chemical requirements stated in this RSL.
All Suppliers must use only Boardriders nominated third party testing labs. In addition, all sample
materials submitted for testing must be a true representation of the materials that will be used
during production. Passing test results will be accepted by Boardriders, in its sole discretion, for a
period of one year from the test date, unless otherwise stated. Boardriders reserves the right to
request additional testing at any time on any material.
For products shipped to China for the China market, Suppliers must ensure full compliance with the
performance mandatory requirements as stated in the China National GB Standards, including GB
18401, GB 20400, GB 21550, GB 31701, GB/T 22849 (knit t-shirts), as well as all other applicable
