Risk Management: Optimizing Your Quality Budget

Allocate resources to the products and suppliers that need the most technical support – the higher the risk in one dimension, the higher the control and monitoring required.

Recycled Polyester Testing – Verification & Quantification

Ensure your recycled polyester claims are genuine.

Following years of research, Worms Safety Laboratories have pioneered an innovative solution to detect and quantify rPET in textiles. Increasing regulation and consumer expectations has increased the need for substantiation of claims.

Even if you know your supply chain, relying solely on someone else’s information and declarations is risky. Accurate scientific testing is the only way to verify the genuineness and amount of rPET within raw materials.

Chem Scan Check™

To support our partners in chemical risk management, we developed Chem Scan Check™ (CSC), which scans for more than 285 hazardous chemical substances in one go. Instead of waiting and paying for multiple tests on expected chemicals with a traditional testing approach, we offer our partners wider visibility, in 72 hours so they can anticipate and mitigate risk.

A chemical scan that gives you visibility on almost all hazardous substances to help prevent ‘unexpected’ non-compliance risks in only 72h.
