The Swedish Chemicals Agency initiates a control of Chromium (VI) in leather products
The purpose of the campaign is to check compliance with the ban on chromium VI in leather / leather products for consumers.
Ca. 50 products will be taken from webshops and analyzed for content of chromium VI.
The check may include, for example, bracelets, gloves, belts, shoes, jackets, fur clothing, mitts, bags, purses / wallets, key bags, pen houses and mobile covers / purses.
The campaign is part of Ref 8 (Internet Commerce)
Chromium VI in leather products is selected, among others. because during KI's 2018/2019 campaign there were a number of violations in this area.
