Leather manufacturers and suppliers can gain an overview of RSL and MRSL obligations within the supply chain by attending this One Day Chemical Compliance & Product Safety in the Supply Chain course in Chennai, India.
Delivered by our experienced Chemistry Lead, this course will introduce you to key restricted substances for the leather industry such as chromium VI, formaldehyde, PCP, azo-dyes, fungicides, NPEO’s, heavy metals and phthalates. These substances are restricted in a number of international chemical regulations such as REACH, CPSIA and California Proposition 65 which apply to major markets such as Europe and the United States. Our expert will provide case studies showing what can happen in the scenario of non-compliance.
The importance of chemical testing (RSL testing) to ensure compliance with chemical regulations will be covered, in addition to specifications and the necessity of a regular due diligence testing programme.
Beyond RSL, the leather, footwear and apparel industries are moving towards MRSL compliance and testing. Delegates will gain a snapshot of potential new obligations and understand best practice guidance for implementation.
