indicates that the requirement shall be met. In some cases the requirement relates only to particular materials within the classification, e.g. pH value of leather components. This does not mean that other materials are precluded from use. O

indicates that if the component part exists, the requirement shall be met. Note1 The absence of X or O indicates that no requirement is met. Note2 For class II footwear, it is usual to have no insole present. However, if a removable insock is used, table 3 is applicable, only chromium VI and pH requirements are fulfilled for leather materials.

The outsole and upper shall both be tested with the same chemicals. After the tests, the tests pieces shall be inspected. If any test pieces is very affected (see EN 13832-1:2018, 4.3.4.3) after testing, it is considered that they fail the test. 6.2.1.3.2 Tests to be performed after the degradation test 6.2.1.3.2.1 Mass variation EN 13832-1:2018, 4.3.4.3 requires the measurements of the mass variation on the upper and outsole samples.
