Monitoring and control system of products
The Textile and Health Association operates, in collaboration with the Ministry of Health, in support of the Authorities for the control of products in circulation on the market by checking the articles taken from the NAS on the recommendation of the ASL (Local Health Company) or individual citizens.
The checks, carried out at accredited laboratories, are aimed at researching on the articles the presence of potentially dangerous substances. In case of a positive outcome, the results of the investigations are transmitted to the competent Authorities for the appropriate interventions.
The sample surveys also help process dossier for the Higher Institute of Health for a risk assessment aimed at improving the rules on product safety.
