Protocol 6.6. is launched!

We are pleased to announce the launch of Protocol P.6.6.1, which becomes mandatory as of 1st April 2019.  This new protocol contains significant changes for Housekeeping, Reporting Requirements, Salt Calculations and Water Measurement. A full breakdown of the key changes is available by clicking on the file below.

Initially launched on the LWG website on 1st October 2018, there was a six month introduction period during which time a leather manufacturer could choose to be audited against the previous P6.5.3 or to be audited against the new P6.6. This introduction period ended on 1st April 2019 when P6.6 will become mandatory for use.
