Doubletree Hotel, Danvers, MA — October 15, 2014

SATRA has invested into researching new ways to demonstrate that our members. products perform to customer expectations in the market place. This event will showcase SATRA.s work on the measurement of thermal rating and water resistance for outdoor footwear, to ensure that the foot is kept comfortable . even in extreme conditions. Consumer protection is also a major consideration for everybody in the supply chain. This relates not only to physical hazards such as slip, heel breakage and abrasion, but also to the presence of chemicals which are known irritants or are otherwise harmful. Sessions on safety critical testing, the use of Restricted Substances Lists (RSLs) and the implications of the U.S. Federal/ State requirements and of the European REACH legislation will help to address these concerns.
