LWG Chemical Management Module

08 June 2017

The LWG Chemical Management Module (CMM) was launched in Hong Kong at our member meeting on 1st April 2017.  This CMM is currently a voluntary stand alone audit module which can be added to a leather manufacturer's existing audit (if the audit has more than 12 months left to run) or arranged to be undertaken at the point of the next main audit. The intention is that the CMM will be integrated into the main audit protocol in the next full upgrade to P7 which is not likely to be before 2019. More information about the CMM and the protocol itself can be found here:  LWG Chemical Management Module
