BLC Leather Technology Centre Ltd. has recently been awarded the ‘Certificate of Excellence’ for proficiency in Formaldehyde tests in leather (pt: iis16A09) and Free and Released Formaldehyde in textile (pt: iis16A08), by the Institute for Interlaboratory Studies (iis), Netherlands. By taking part in regular proficiency tests, BLC ensures its testing practices are some of the most accurate in the industry.

 

The scheme involved testing both leather and textile samples for formaldehyde content to the international industry standard ISO/IEC 17043:2010.

 

Testing Protects Your Company Reputation

The leather supply chain relies on credible and accurate formaldehyde test results. BLC is able to test in accordance with national, regional and international standards, helping to ensure compliance against global legislation.

 

BLC understands that the market gets frustrated by the variances between laboratory results and therefore, as part of our due diligence, BLC undergoes monthly proficiency testing to ensure continual achievement of highly accurate results. BLC carries out proficiency testing in the form of inter lab trials, which is also a requirement of ISO 17025 laboratory accreditation.

 

BLC actively participate in formally recognised proficiency schemes run by accredited organisations such as LGC (TOYTEST and NIMS), iis and TEPS.  They provide BLC with a benchmark against a higher number of laboratories. This is BLC’s preferred route for proficiency testing and also the route favoured by BLC’s independent accreditation body, UKAS: Our accreditation reference 0076.
