For this reason the European Commission has decided that products containing DMF are prohibited to be placed on the market as from 1 May 2009. Products which are already placed on the market have to be withdrawn as from the same date. (Commission decision 2009/251/EC) 

Smit & Zoon confirms that none of its products contain DMF nor did they contain this substance in the past. All Smit & Zoon products comply with the European legislation and can thus be safely used to produce leather for the European market.
