EU REACH Complience

Leather and Leather goods suppliers who are exporting products into the European Union (and the European Economic area) will need to ensure that the products comply with the requirements of the European Regulation on chemicals – REACH (Registration, Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemicals).

Whilst this wide-ranging legislation covers the whole chemical supply chain there are specific impacts for the leather and footwear sectors.

Guidance is available for the key issues for the leather sector and the footwear sector.

In addition there is a generic restricted substances list which breaks down both mandatory and brand specific requirements for a range of materials commonly used in footwear and other leather goods.
