Product Manufacturers

If you manufacture, market or convert nonwoven disposable products, or provide nonwovens substrates to this segment, then we invite you to join us.  

Since 2008, EDANA and INDA have published Flushability Guidelines along with a Code of Practice to help companies assess their product prior to making a flushable claim. 

We also promote one consistent “Do Not Flush” symbol to be used on products that do not meet the Guidelines or have a significant potential to be flushed, even if not designed or marketed for this purpose. Most importantly, the logo should be prominent, clearly visable and legible on primary adn secondary packaging.

If you haven’t already, we encourage you to join with other leaders in the nonwoven industry and adopt the Flushability Guidelines and Code of Practice. By doing so, you can confidently prove your flushable claim, correctly label those products that should not be flushed, and do the right thing for our environment and waterways.  

External or independent laboratories that are able to conduct these tests include:
•    CTP, Grenoble, France
•    IPS, Appleton, WI, USA

We suggest you begin with the executive summary to get an overview of the Guidelines and Code of Practice, or check out the frequently asked questions here.

Once you are familiar with the requirements, you can purchase the flushability test methods wither in full, or by individual test at the EDANA publication store.
