FAIR: Factors affecting the quality of hides and skins
Under this 38-month project (1998 to 2001), ten European partners developed a network of European researchers working on hide and skin quality. Their aim was to exchange information in order to enable co-ordination of efforts, to produce a range of information on protecting hide and skin quality - including leaflets, computer training packages and a web site, and to develop a working document outlining the needs for further work.
The training software (CD-ROM) can be obtained from COTANCE.
A Code of Conduct for the European Leather Industry
Implementation and Evaluation
In the year 2000, the representative bodies of European tanners, together with COTANCE, signed a highly advanced social Code of Conduct. The Code was developed at European level by COTANCE and ETUF:TCL (European trade union federation for textile, clothing and leather).
