Please always check for the latest updated version at BASFs Internet site. This confirmation will expire on the 01. September 2013, if not superseded by declaration of BASF earlier.
The information submitted in this confirmation is based on our current knowledge and experience. In view of the many factors that may affect processing and application, these data do not relieve processors from the responsibility of carrying out their own tests and experiments; neither do they imply any legally binding assurance of certain properties or of suitability for a specific purpose nor of the legal status of the listed product names. It is the responsibility of those to whom we supply our products to ensure that any proprietary rights and existing laws and legislation are observed.
Responsibility for ensuring that garments processed using the Chemicals comply with the requirements of the downstream textile market rests with processors.
