1. Commitment -Restricted Substance Mission Statement

TTG’s Global Regulatory Department researches, evaluates, and communicates regulatory requirements for all brands. These requirements are mandated by laws and regulations where TTG has stores and active websites. The primary role of the Regulatory Department is to determine 1: which laws and regulations impact our products, 2: how our products impact the consumer and lastly 3: how our product impacts the environment. The Regulatory Team consists of product experts who coordinate across the supply chain and internal cross functional partners. They contribute to process, policy and product standards that allow our brands to achieve global compliance. Simply put we keep the product compliant and safe!



TTG actively maintains a high standard of quality and safety for all products shipped globally to consumers. One of the ways this is achieved it through the management of TTG’s Restricted Substance Policy.

Authentic Goodness

TTG achieves this by considering the welfare and best interests of consumers of TTG products, the workers who make them, and the environment that provides the resources for their manufacture.

Always Forward

TTG remains committed to the vision of zero discharge of hazardous chemicals from our supply chain. TTG aims to do this while striving to make our business profitable, in order to continuously optimize the benefits for all our stakeholders.

3.TTG’s Strategy

TTG’s Quality Assurance and Regulatory Departments maintains a six- part approach to managing and mitigating the risk of restricted substances:

  1. Align with industry goals and initiatives specific to the most current list of restrictive substance found globally.
  2. Annually educates and informs the Supply Chain of specific restricted substance policies and substance control measures based on legislative updates.
  3. Should TTG be aware of any changes in the legislation regarding hazardous substances and its test methods, they will inform vendors and material suppliers. This, however, does not release vendors and material suppliers from their responsibility to monitor and comply with all legal requirements relevant to the products they supply and to ensure full compliance.
  4. Seasonally obtain test evidence from your suppliers through due diligence regulatory and quality testing and product audits.
  5. On demand technical support or corrective actions (as needed) are utilized to further mitigate the risk of substances found in materials and or finished product.
  6. Biannual wastewater factory training, monitoring and auditing in partnership with the TTG’s Sustainability Department.

4. Vendor & Material Supplier Responsibilities

Vendors and suppliers are informed of legislative updates through monthly and or quarterly updates as the global regulatory landscape changes. Once informed Vendors and Suppliers are held accountable for compliance based on applicable international laws and regulations that restrict or prohibit the type and concentration of potentially hazardous substances.

The TTG Restricted Substances policy requires the vendor and the suppliers in which they procure materials to prove to themselves, and then prove to TTG, that Restricted Substances (specified hazardous chemicals) are not present in their supply chain, or when their use cannot be avoided, then the levels of the Restricted Substances in the product are well below the minimum levels required by the consumer and environmental protection legislation in our global markets.

  1. TTG pursues and maintains contractual relationships only with those Vendors and Suppliers that have agreed to comply with the guidelines and directives set out in the TTG Master Vendor Agreement.
  2. Vendors are ultimately held accountable for the financial burdens in the event of a non-compliance issues. TTG also works with vendors and suppliers in the resolution and proactive preventative measures to further reduce and control the possibilities of unwanted substances in products.
