Introduction
The Restricted Substance List (RSL) applies to all VF Products 1, including but not limited to apparel, footwear, equipment, accessories and other products of value. The RSL also applies to all Raw Materials 2, parts, trims, sundries, chemicals and other goods supplied or used in the manufacture of VF Products. The RSL is an integral part of VF’s quality and safety programs and must be shared with all vendors, suppliers and other players throughout the product supply chain. This 2011 RSL (March 2011 Version) is effective for all production commencing after May 1, 2011. Unless otherwise revised or cancelled, this RSL will remain in effect for all VF Products and Raw Materials delivered to VF after May 1, 2011. Each supplier of VF Product or Raw Material represents and warrants that each of its materials (whether a VF Product or Raw Material) complies with all provisions of the RSL (including, but not limited to, the RSL prohibitions, restrictions and other requirements) and that the supplier agrees to indemnify and hold harmless VF Corporation and its subsidiaries and brands (collectively, “VF”) from any claim, loss, damage or other detriment, resulting from any such supplier’s non-compliance. We require our suppliers and business partners to study this document carefully, implement management processes in their operations to comply with these requirements (including a verification process), and communicate the information to their internal teams and raw material suppliers. We require each of our suppliers of VF Products or Raw Materials to certify their compliance to the 2011 VF Corporate RSL by executing the Supplier RSL Compliance Agreement (Section 1 of this document) and sending this agreement to Kim Smith, Manager of VF Procurement Services, by email to RSL@vfc.com or by fax to +1.336.424.4265. Should you have any questions or concerns about this document, please do not hesitate to contact your VF corporate or brand contact person, one of the contact people listed in Appendix 1, or the general RSL mailbox for VF (RSL@vfc.com).
