Chem-CHAT is a new informative bulletin from the Chem-MAP team. Supporting the objectives of the Chem-MAP programme, Chem-CHAT will provide a monthly update of chemical related stories and services to support better understanding of the challenges relating to improved chemical management with the entire supply chain.
With a focus on leather, textile and synthetic materials, the information will provide current, and topical discussion around chemicals of concern and help to guide our reader to a better understanding of upstream chemical management, particularly the engagement of MRSL related activities. Eurofins | BLC have a team of dedicated chemical specialists ready and waiting to support you with your chemical management needs.
If your company manufactures leather, textile and synthetic raw materials or finished products, your business can engage in Chem-MAP. Engaging with Chem-MAP provides your business with more than just a badge; Chem-MAP shows your customers and suppliers that your company is committed to responsible chemistry which protects consumers, workers and the environment.
