Chromium VI – How Confident are you?

Chromium VI has most certainly been under the spotlight in recent months; not only has there been an influx of 60-day notices issued to brands and retailers under US State regulations California Proposition 65, there has also been an ongoing proposal consultation within the EU which is looking to tighten the limits for Chromium VI in leather.

This forces the question; how confident are you that your supply chain can consistently control Chromium VI levels during, and post, leather production?

 

A Simple Tool for Profiling Chromium VI Risk

  • Eurofins | BLC have created an Excel based desktop tool to profile the risk of controlling Chromium VI in tanneries
  • We have identified the right questions in the tool to identify risk associated with Chromium VI
  • The tool has been designed so that tannery details can be inputted to the spreadsheet and a risk score automatically produced
  • Can be used immediately to start to identify the risk of controlling Chromium VI

 

A series of questions covering a multitude of different risk categories are sent to the tannery for completion. On return of the questionnaire, the results are entered into the profiling tool which automatically generates a risk profile for the tannery.

 

Why use the Risk Profiler?

  • Demonstrates that compliance is taken seriously
  •  To assess chrome VI risk within the supply chain
  •  Helps to identify where chrome VI audits may be needed
  •  Helps to formulate a smart testing plan (which suppliers, volume, frequency etc.)
  •  The individual category scores help to identify which areas of manufacturing require improvement/attention
  •  An education piece/training process for the brand and its’ suppliers
  •  Easy to use
