TESTING TO MEET REACH REGUALTIONS

Based on eco-toxicological studies, a large number of chemicals have been identified for REACH These are termed as Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC). It is required that these prohibited chemicals are not used for manufacturing of any product entering Europe. Stringent limits have been enforced for these chemicals on the product(s) exported to Europe.

Testtex has thorough knowledge and ultra modern testing facility to identify and quantify chemicals termed as SVHC and prohibited under REACH regulations.

ZERO DISCHARGE OF HAZARDOUS CHEMICALS (ZHDC)

Initiative taken by major apparel, footwear brands and retailers are expected to achieve the target ZDHC by 2020 through adoption of Green Chemistry.

Due to cheap labor, apparel & footwear supply chains are gradually shifting to developing countries which are lacking in manufacturing abilities and knowledge about hazards associated with use of chemicals. A large number of chemicals have been identified as carcinogenic or toxic and their use has been prohibited. Some others are associated with one or other hazards which may be saying, of allergenic or of explosive nature etc. It is also realized that end of pipe treatments are costly and not fool proof. Thus, there is a need to enforce chemical management system to avoid and limit the use of hazardous chemicals finally leading to their zero discharge into the generated effluents.

Testtex have in depth knowledge about the hazards associated with chemicals in use and have full-fledged testing facility to detect and quantify them in micro levels on the manufactured products, in chemical inputs (dyes, auxiliaries etc.)And in the effluent. Testtex with sound understanding of safety data sheet (SDS) are in position to advice industry about handling and avoiding use of identified hazardous chemicals.
