Restricted materials

The Electrolux Restricted Materials List specifies the chemicals that we classify as “banned”, “restricted” and “substances of concern”.

Through the Restricted Materials List (RML), Electrolux stipulates its group-wide position on chemicals in products.

The RML is designed to facilitate compliance to legislation such as restrictions on hazardous substances (RoHS), and registration of chemicals (such as REACH) and upcoming stricter chemicals regulations in China and California.

The purpose of the list goes beyond compliance–by monitoring the presence of chemicals that may potentially constitute a risk, the Group is equipped to respond to new scientific findings.

The RML covers all materials and parts of products as well as packaging. Compliance is mandatory for all Electrolux operations and suppliers. Contact your Electrolux business partner for further requirements.
