The Associazione tessile e Salute has coordinated over the years, important studies concerning chemicals used in the textile and footwear sector and the risks associated with them.

Among them are:

  • Construction of a Database of substances in the textile industry (project funded by ISPESL)
  • Construction of a Database of substances in the footwear industry
  • How to use substances in the textile production (study carried out in the framework of the WG UNI)

The Associazione Tessile e Salute has also recently participated in a major study on behalf of the European Community entitled ‘Introduction to Study on Link between Allergic reactions in Textile Products and Chemicals’, producing a document entitled ‘Chemicals in textile products and allergic reactions’.
