Eurofins | BLC? Members only, can attend this free workshop on Understanding Chromium (Chrome) VI in Leather.

Understanding how to manage the risk of chrome VI formation in leather can be challenging as there are a number of considerations to be made both during, and post, leather production. In addition, there have been several changes and updates to chrome VI testing methods over the last 18 months which need to be well managed in order to ensure the most appropriate tests are being carried out.

In light of these challenges, Eurofins | BLC are holding a chrome VI workshop exclusively for members to help navigate through these complexities.

  • How chrome VI is formed

  • Minimising the risk of chrome VI formation

  • Regulatory status

  • Understanding the differences in chrome VI testing methods (17075-1 and 17075-2)

  • Q&A
