This document provides lists of chemicals that have already been detected in leather and guidelines for applying the available chemical test methods for leather. This information can be used by those involved in setting specifications for leather, especially for those parameters relating to restricted chemical substances.

Generic lists of restricted chemicals used on the market contain many substances that are not relevant to the leather industry. Those chemical substances that are not mentioned in this document do not need to be determined, thus avoiding unnecessary analytical costs.

NOTE            Due to the constantly changing legal requirements and toxicological evaluation of chemical substances, this document cannot address all potentially critical substances.
