Leather – the topic of the first issue of “BDS Compass” magazine for 2018

 

The topic of the first issue for this year of “BDS Compass” magazine is leather, as this is one of the most used and important materials in our everyday life.

 

We present the important standard of origin that confers where the leather comes from - that is the country where its last substantial transformation has taken place. The standard shows how to identify, mark and label the leather.

 

We do not even think about how to select the leather for clothing, and there is a particular standard that gives detailed reference values and related testing methods.

 

We also present other standards for upholstery leather for home furniture and for car seats. Other documents show what tests should be performed for sustainability of colours to water, different types of laundry and perspiration.

 

The expert eng. Vergina Grozdanova explains how important the standards for leather are. She recommends to Bulgarian manufacturers to participate in technical committees for standardization in order to be up-to-date.

 

Under the heading of “Focus” highlight is given on the new ISO 31000 standard that simplifies risk management. Past practices are no longer adequate to address today's threats and need to be constantly refined.
