TÜV SÜD, the German testing and certification organisation, is adding a new service scope of Leather and Footwear Physical Testing to its existing Softlines Testing Laboratory in Ho-Chi-Minh City in Vietnam. With that new service enhancement TÜV SÜD strengthens its support for global customers and manufacturers to optimize their global supply chain and to meet their ever evolving product safety requirement.
Now Ho Chi Minh City Lab can offer a comprehensive range of Testing Services to Leather & Footwear, Textile & Apparel segments. TÜV SÜD’s testing laboratories offer a gamut of laboratory services ranging from testing according to the European chemicals regulation REACH to analytical, physical and mechanical services for leather and footwear products. All tests carried out by TÜV SÜD testing laboratories fulfill the highest international standards of quality and safety. The new lab in Ho-Chi-Minh City adds another location to its existing laboratories for leather products and footwear in China (Xiamen and Shanghai) and in India (Ambur, Ranipet and Gurgaon). TÜV SÜD has also got a lab in Germany (Frankfurt am Main) to support European customers who require local support.
International standards of quality and safety
China, India and Vietnam account for around 90 per cent of global shoe production. Manufacturers and retailers are faced with the challenge of having to meet the complex legal regulations for quality, safety and longevity and of communicating this fact to the outside. However, TÜV SÜD not only offers testing of leather products and footwear but also pre-shipment inspection, audits, the certification of products and production processes, training and seminars. Beyond the above, the TÜV SÜD certification mark is a renowned and reputable quality label, demonstrating that a product fulfils international quality and safety standards.
