Chromium(VI): Get the Latest Developments at the Leather, Compliance & Sustainability New York Conference

The persistence of chromium(VI) in leather goods continues to be problematic as highlighted by a rise in recent 60-day notices under the California Proposition 65 regulations in the US and continual presence in weekly RAPEX reports in the EU.

Join Norton Rose Fulbright and Eurofins | BLC to gain a legal perspective on managing chromium(VI) risk in products at the Leather, Compliance & Sustainability New York Conference. Attend this leading industry event taking place on November 13 to hear the latest developments on chromium(VI) and how to manage the chemical risk within leather products.

 

Chromium(VI) in Leather: What is the risk?

The risk to brands and retailers selling leather products is potentially significant with products containing excessive levels of chromium(VI) being withdrawn from the market, recalled from end users and rejected at the border, impacting manufacturers and retailers in costs and reputation.

 

What is Chromium(VI)?

Chromium(III) tanned leather can form traces of chromium(VI) under certain environmental conditions. The conversion from chromium(III) to chromium(VI) is an oxidation process and can be facilitated by the factors like heat, UV radiation, changes in pH, presence of unsaturated organic compounds (e.g. natural fats), oxidizing agents and many other factors. Often several of these factors need to be present at the same time.
