Footwear Testing from BLC

BLC offers a wide range of footwear testing and can test in line with CEN standards on footwear. The footwear testing service comprises whole shoe, leather, materials, component and fit assessments. We can test all men's, women's and children's footwear.

A significant element of footwear testing is restricted substances testing and BLC provides all the necessary legislative and ethical tests required in the UK, Europe and the US. We can test to national, European and international standards.  BLC's footwear testing facility provides the capability to measure the performance of footwear to ensure that it meets appropriate performance requirements for quality and safety.

BLC is one of the fastest footwear testing laboratories in Europe and our aim is to deliver results within 3-5 working days.  Established for over 90 years we have the technical pedigree in footwear testing to ensure fast accurate support.

Our UKAS accreditation for a range of footwear testing reinforces and demonstrates BLC's competence, impartiality and performance capability in the area of the product testing services sector to meet the needs of manufacturers and retailers.

Whilst many footwear testing laboratories are only able to supply simple pass/fail test reports; BLC is able to offer additional support and advice immediately upon report of a sample failure.  In addition our experience of different material testing means that we ensure the appropriate test methods are used at all times.
