Chemicals used in footwear products pose potential health risks to factory workers and consumers alike. In response to these risks, regulators around the world have implemented restrictions on the use of certain chemicals in a wide range of consumer products, including footwear. This white paper summarises key regulations regarding the use of chemicals in footwear products. The paper also discusses how TÜV SÜD’s certification process can assist footwear manufacturers in their efforts to achieve compliance with these regulations, and how the TÜV SÜD Footwear Mark can build positive brand awareness and customer loyalty.
