Developed by Eurofins | BLC Leather Technology Centre Ltd. in partnership with Vert-Tex, Chem-MAP prevents harmful chemicals from entering the leather, textile and synthetic materials supply chain, protecting workers, consumers, and the environment.
Chemical companies, materials manufacturers, brands and retailers achieve an internationally recognised award through one of three programmes in the Chem-MAP family. Achieving a Chem-MAP award signifies the use of responsible chemicals in the production of consumer goods.
Chem-MAP is the future of chemical management in leather, textile and synthetic materials supply chains.
