BLC has developed two new training courses to help companies meet the increasing demands of both legislation and discerning customers.

Understanding restricted substances

Course Date: Thursday 7.12.06

Aimed at everyone in the leather supply chain from raw material suppliers to retailers of leather products, this course explains the complexities of legislation and testing as well as a basic understanding of what to consider and where to go for help.

Leather performance specifications and standards

Course Date: Tuesday 14.11.06

This course will give tanners, end users and retailers an awareness of fitness for purpose and the associated implications, an understanding of the process of developing standards and the organisations involved, as well as explaining the testing requirements for different products.

These courses complement the existing training portfolio at BLC, which includes leather, leather products (footwear, upholstery, automotive) and leather technology.

BLC training courses, tried and tested over many years, are geared to all levels in organisations. In addition, all BLC courses can be adapted to meet specific company or group requirements and delivered on-site anywhere in the world.
