Munich. More and more markets around the world have strict regulations for leather products to protect customers from dangerous chemicals as there is a greater awareness regarding the potential toxicity of exposure to chromium (VI). To facilitate market access and increased acceptance of their products, leather manufacturers and producers should reduce the risk of chromium (VI) contamination. That can be realized by comprehensive testing and quality measures. To inform about safety and quality in leather production, TÜV SÜD offers a webinar on 13th October at 10am CEST (4pm SGT). The registration for the webinar can be found here: http://www.tuv-sud.com/chromiumviwebinar.
The webinar addresses quality directors, quality assurance departments, leather producers and manufacturers as well as leather distributors. The experts Dr. Benedikt Hendan, Team Leader Chemical and Softlines Testing at TÜV SÜD, and Dean Ashworth, Global Sales Manager Softlines at TÜV SÜD, will give an overview on how leather products become contaminated with chromium (VI), inform about regulations related to chromium (VI) and show how to avoid chromium (VI) formation to ensure product safety.
