The last twelve months have seen acontinual succession of actual orproposed changes to legislation affecting those supplying fine and costume jewellery, accessories and toys.

The introduction and implementation of both the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) Directive and the Toy Safety Directive have raised many questions and the Laboratory is working hard to keep ahead of developments and ensure they have the appropriate, accredited test methods in place to respond to the ever changing requirements of the law and therefore their customers.

Allergens such as nickel and toxins and carcinogens such as lead and cadmium are the key area of focus at present.

The latest regulation to be announced will impact on permissible levels of cadmium from December 2011 onwards.
