Footwear Testing

Footwear Testing

With the development of the economy and the improvement of the quality of life, people are increasing the shoes‘s requirements of comfort, environmental and health. Due to the emergence of EU regulations and the US CPSC regulations, the quality and safety of footwear products are receiving more and more attention from consumers in various countries, also the quality requirements are becoming more and more strict. Many countries and companies have established their own control requirements for footwear products. Manufacturers must ensure that their products meet all relevant standards. Now, NTEK can perform a series of physical and chemical environmental tests on footwear to help your products break through the barriers of trading, technology and environmental protection, ensuring your products are safe to export.
