Libryo & ADEC Innovations deliver innovative supply chain compliance

Written by Vicky Daley

It’s now possible for fashion brands and their suppliers to know their legal requirements and compliance status globally, with certainty and confidence.

London, UK, 20 August, 2019  – To have a world today where companies cannot easily understand what the law requires of them is simply unacceptable. This leads to many negative environmental and social impacts, such as waste production and child labor.

Libryo and ADEC Innovation share a vision to create a better, more sustainable world, fostering responsible practices through improved processes, greater transparency and operational efficiencies.

CleanChain, an ADEC Innovation is an application designed to increase long term profitability throughout supply chains. This helps businesses gain visibility and insights into the chemical use in their supply chain. It automates the complex tasks of tracking, managing and reporting compliance with Manufacturing Restricted Substance Lists (MRSLs) and Restricted Substances Lists (RSLs).


The partnership with Libryo enables ADEC Innovation to integrate Libryo’s vast library of more than 20,000 legal registers with CleanChain’s comprehensive management software. The new Compliance Module makes it easy for brands and suppliers to understand their federal and regional legal and regulatory obligations, create action plans for compliance, and keep track of multiple facilities.

The tool lets businesses know if they are legally compliant in just seconds, transforming the job of a risk and compliance practitioner. The technology filters out irrelevant information, converting only relevant legal items into a real-time checklist to see, on the spot, if they are meeting legal obligations. If they are not compliant, the Libryo platform will let them know with ease and accuracy what next steps need to be taken.

Libryo and ADEC are currently working on their first joint project with a leading UK high street brand, which will roll-out the new solution across hundreds of sites in their supply chain over the next few months.

Peter Flynn, Libryo’s Chief Executive Officer said, “We are delighted to have partnered with ADEC to bring this innovation to an industry that has been searching for a smarter way to address this very difficult problem. Helping to solve environmental and social issues like this is the reason we founded Libryo, so it is very satisfying to see this solution launch so strongly.”

“The driving force behind CleanChain is transparency, and our partnership with Libryo allows us to take that to the next level,” said Lance Pierce, President, Global Development, ADEC Innovations. “Having real-time access to regulations involving waste production, hazardous chemicals, and child labor empowers companies to proactively make positive impacts for their business, as well as the communities they serve, and to be transparent in doing so.”

This is the world's most accurate solution for apparel supply chains, which we hope marks the beginning of a more sustainable and responsible fashion industry. It should also serve as a catalyst for other industry supply chains worldwide, as this technology brings greater legal transparency and delivers a better future in which to not only work, but live.
