Footware and Leather Products

While styling and comfort are among the key attributes a consumer looks for in footwear, meeting standards of performance, durability and safety are also important. In addition, conforming to the increasing number of regulatory guidelines and laws is imperative.

HQTS-QAI offers expert guidance in conforming to industry, regulatory and a customer’s exacting standards, as well as compliance with USA, European and international directives, standards and testing requirements. For example, we test in accordance with AATCC, ASTM, REACH, ISO, SATRA, GB, and other related standards. This is in addition to our own exacting performance guidelines and testing methods for both footwear products.

Because reliable, high quality footwear has a significant impact on customer satisfaction and brand success, working with HQTS-QAI can help you avoid the issues that put your bottom line at risk.
