  • SMT, 1994-1998. Fifth call for proposals supporting document. Topic 27: Development of a harmonised test method for the detection of certain aromatic amines in leather due to the use of azo dyes


More detailed and more technical background information is given relating to this topic of the fifth call for proposals under the specific programme for standards, measurements and testing (SMT), 1994-1998. The overall objective is to develop an analytical technique for the detection of certain aromatic amines in leather. In this context, the project aims:

- (i) To identify the substance(s) reliably and without any scope for doubt;
- (ii) To develop a suitable, generally wet chemical method of analysis, which converts the substance(s) to a form in which they can be processed using techniques involving technical apparatus.

A time scale and expected result format are also described.
