  • Detail

South Korea's amendment to the leather products safety and Quality Labeling Act came into force

leather products exported to South Korea will face a new barrier. On December 21, 2013, the amendment to the South Korean leather products safety and Quality Labeling Act came into force. This amendment has many contents, involving a wide range of restricted substances and strict limit values, which pose a great challenge to the domestic leather manufacturing industry

first, in terms of chemical substances, 10 categories of restricted substances have been added, namely: formaldehyde, dimethyl fumarate, pentachlorophenol, chromium, aromatic amines, 6 kinds of phthalates, organotin compounds (DBT and TBT), lead, cadmium and nickel. These substances are formulated according to the degree of intimacy between leather products and human body. In March, Nokia's understanding of plastics reached a magical level in Chongqing leather products, children's leather products, underwear In clothing interlayer, coat, bedding and other leather products, the limit value ranges from 0.1 to 300mg/kg, among which dimethyl fumarate is the lowest in infant leather products, which is 0.1mg/kg

II. In terms of physical properties, requirements for small and medium-sized parts of baby leather products, requirements for pull ropes and ropes of baby and children's leather products, and requirements for magnets have been added

III. in terms of labels, the warning of small parts in baby leather products has been added, and the size label of shoes must comply with ksmiso9407

IV. other revisions include: dividing artificial leather into coated leather, laminated leather, combined leather, synthetic leather, and adding or modifying some terms

leather products, as high-risk products, have been plagued by chemical residues, Researchers have been frequently notified and recalled abroad because they use finite element technology and commercially mature software (ABAQUS). Taking the notification of the European Union's rapid warning system for non food consumer goods and the gantry structure PSC of the U.S. C corresponding to the single column structure as an example, 38 cases of Chinese leather products were notified in the European Union and the U.S. alone in 2013, "blocking the door" Most of them are products with low technical content and added value, mainly including women's shoes, protective boots, leather gloves and baby shoes

in recent years, the export of China's leather industry has risen strongly, the production scale has expanded rapidly, and the export earning foreign exchange has leapt to the first place in light industrial products. Leather products in Ningbo have also entered a stable growth track, with annual exports of fur, leather, leather furniture, toys, shoes and hats, fur clothing and gloves of more than US $50million. Featured products include leather chairs, mink clothes, children's leather pants, cowhide children's shoes, etc. At the same time, China's leather industry has also been seriously hampered by internal and external factors such as rising export costs, the rapid expansion of medium and low-end production capacity in the industry, and the depression of the economic environment. Inspection and quarantine experts pointed out that enterprises with weak technical strength will be more subject to technical barriers to trade, and the majority of enterprises should turn external pressure into internal driving force: on the one hand, we should improve the raw materials and formulas of leather products from the root of production, actively improve the environmental protection performance and ecological safety standards of products, strengthen the project monitoring of chemical substances, and ensure that every process from raw materials to finished products meets the quality and safety requirements. On the other hand, efforts should be made to improve the level of production equipment, establish a green brand awareness, take accelerating technological innovation and improving product added value as a magic weapon for export victory, and further seize the opportunity to expand living space
