Trinidad & Tobago develops new garment quality standards

Jul '13
The Trinidad and Tobago Bureau of Standards (TTBS) has drafted a new standard ‘Assessment of Garment Quality – Requirements’  and has invited public comments on the same.
 
The standard TTS 625:20XX provides requirements pertaining to the various constructional features, finishing, and presentation of the outerwear and innerwear garments, like coats including jackets, jac-suits tops and bush jackets; dresses; sleepwear including pyjamas and nighties; shirts, including blouses; skirts; trousers including, pants, shorts, culottes; foundation garments, including panties, bras, briefs, lingerie and active wear; swimwear; and crochet garments.
 
The new standard would replace the earlier national standard TTS 21 60 401-1985, ‘Guide to the assessment of garment quality’.
 
Under the new standard, the scope has been extended to include sleepwear, foundation, crochet and swimwear garments, while clauses related to conformity and sampling have been excluded.
 
The aim of the new standard developed by TTBS is to establish requirements pertaining to the various constructional features, finishing, and presentation of garments.
 
It is intended for use by a wide range of stakeholders. It would help manufacturers to improve the quality of the construction of garments and the development of quality control procedures. Likewise, it would help importers as well as both wholesale and retail distributors to identify garment quality and construction.
 
The new standard would help export agencies to develop export criteria for good garment construction, and also enable consumers to access information on best practices in garment construction.
 
The new standard was drafted by a Technical Committee comprising of representatives from various fashion bodies, academic institutions, ministries and state agencies, business organizations, and independent consultants with expertise in garment construction. 
 
The TTBS said it would soon bring other standards related to school uniforms.
