Homeworking Policy

In a few countries we allow suppliers to use workers sitting at their own homes to manufacture certain parts of the product. To ensure these workers’ rights we have made a Homeworking Policy which must be followed at all times.

Chemical Restrictions

BESTSELLER’s Chemical Restrictions are formed according to the precautionary principle and based on the latest scientific research and international and national legislation. Moreover, the criteria (compounds and limit values) are inspired by the Oeko -Tex Standard 100.

This means that the Chemical Restrictions are a list of chemicals which are either not allowed in our products, or are only allowed in limited amounts, and includes substances that can be hazardous to human health or the environment as well as those documented to have a harmful effect.

Therefore, we handle the situation case by case with the utmost attention to the personal situation of the workers.
