The AD-DSL (Aerospace and Defense Declarable Substances List) is a collection of regulated chemicals. It serves as a voluntary resource for companies in the automotive and defense industries to get an overview of their compliance status. In fact, it is not an environmental law.
The IAEG chooses chemicals that are environmental concerns in the aerospace and defense industries. The main factor is that they are first recognized as threats by other organizations or are candidates for future acts. In addition, the AD-DSL provides regulatory criteria for each chemical to indicate whether they are restricted, declarable or of interest under those previous regulations.
The AD-DSL’s purpose is to unite substances from different regulations in the same document, such as some of the chemicals from the following acts.

The AD-DSL strives to be a consistent way of communicating with suppliers about compliance. Hence, grouping the chemicals together is meant to simplify the inquiry process. Manufacturers identify any substances from the AD-DSL that are present in their parts and could therefore be dangerous to the environment.
