POPs Regulation Compliance
Persistent organic pollutants (POPs) are organic compounds that are resistant to environmental degradation through chemical, biological, and photolytic processes. Because of their persistence, these chemical substances are transported across international boundaries far from their sources and they persist in the environment, bioaccumulate through the food web, and pose a great hazard to human health and the environment.
SVHC ,“Substance of Very High Concern”, refers to any substance that has adverse effects on human health and the environment.

Prop 65
California Proposition 65 (also known as Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act) was enacted as a ballot initiative in November 1986. Prop 65 businesses are required to provide a "clear and reasonable" warning before knowingly and intentionally exposing anyone to a listed chemical “Known to the State” to cause cancer or reproductive harm.

Phthalate Testing
Phthalates is a general term for compounds which result from the reaction of phthalic anhydride and alcohol. Such substances are mainly employed as plasticisers make plastics and rubber more piable. They are widely used in electronic and electrical equipment (EEE), toys, coatings, inks, garments, packaging materials, detergents, lubricants and personal care articles, etc. But when the concentration of phthalates exceeds a certain level, it may disrupt endocrine of human bodies, bringing harm to the development and health of children.
US Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA)
The full name of TSCA is the Toxic Substance Control Act, which was officially implemented on October 11, 1976. The Act aims to comprehensively consider the environmental, economic and social impacts of chemical substances circulating in the United States. and prevent "unreasonable risks" to human health and the environment. After several revisions, it has now become the effective regulation of chemical substances in the United States.

Azodye Testing
Azodye almost exists in all colours as one of the most widely-used synthetic dyestuffs in printing technique (for textiles). It is used for dyeing and printing of natural and synthetic fibres, also for the colouring of paints, plastics and rubber.
Formaldehyde Testing
Formaldehyde (molecular formula: HCHO) is colorless and has a pungent, irritating odour. As a toxicant, it can also interact with proteins. So inhaling of high concentration of formaldehyde may lead to severe irritation and inflammability to respiratory tract, eye irritation, headache, bronchus and asthma. Furthermore, dermatitis, stains and necrosis would be caused if it comes in direct contact with the skin. Formaldehyde is easily dissolved in water, alcohol and ether. Its water solution with 35% to 40% formaldehyde is also known as “formalin”, which is commonly applied as a preservative. In addition, it is widely applied as reactants in finishing auxiliaries for textiles, such as resin finishing agents, fixing agent, softener and bender. In our daily life, we may find formaldehyde present in synthetic textiles, garments, leather, bedding and curtains.
