stringent limit values and parameters for harmful substances set forth Leather Products
Version 09/2006
All SG limit values are in general much lower than the statutory Responsibility
The SG mark confirms that there is no danger to health according to Natural materials such as leather and fur have to be tanned and dyed to achieve the desired characteristics. Chemicals are also used for preservation purposes while the materials are being transported or in And this gives the consumer confidence with regards to the product’s Chemicals are indispensable for the production of leather goods – For the protection of consumers, chemical substances may however The SG catalogue of test criteria was developed by experts of the still be used to an extent that does not pose a risk to health. participating institutions on the basis of the latest scientific findings. Therefore it is extremely important to check that they are used The necessary tests depend on the materials used, the auxiliaries correctly during production, that the auxiliaries are suitable and that and the production processes. They guarantee reliable detection of the materials contain only low amounts of harmful substance or even The test results are supplemented by a legally binding manufacturer’s Only then can products be manufactured that do not pose a risk to declaration pertaining to the basic materials and the production The manufacturer’s own quality control system guarantees consistent Responsible manufacturers and retailers of shoes, leather goods, All finished products and materials labelled with the SG-Mark are leather clothing and the materials required for production, know about subject to spot checks on a regular basis. the above mentioned risks to human health and act accordingly. All certificates awarded are recorded in a data bank. To document that their products have been manufactured with exceptional care, they label them with the label „Tested for harmful substances“, (German: Schadstoffgeprüft) in short SG-Mark. Partners

In this unit children extend their knowledge of places around the school, and learn to talk about everyday routines and subjectsstudied during the school day. They revise both telling the time on the hour and some adjectives to describe appearance. In this unit children consolidate work on telling the time (Unit 11 and Unit 15). They begin to use extended descriptions ofpeople and share this in
