Environmental standards key to exports
24
Mar '08
With growing global conscious, environmental and safety aspects of textiles and apparels have become a focus for all countries especially the US and Japan, which are the biggest importers from China.

Once the products fail the set standards, it brings a loss of repute to all Chinese products and economic losses to the companies.

To ensure that textiles and apparels which are exported meet the standards, Zhejiang provincial Inspection & Quarantine Bureau, plays an important role in protecting the repute of Zhejiang provincial textile and clothing products in the international market, besides helping the companies overcome the technical shortcomings of the product.

According to statistics, in 2007 a total of 1065 shipments amounting to US $30 million were seized by the bureau at the time of shipment from Zhejiang port, which did not adhere to the set standards.

Zhejiang province is an export hub for textile and garment manufacturers. The total exports from this province is valued at US $71.2 billion, with most of the exports taking place to environmentally and safety conscious countries like the European Union, US, Japan and Hong Kong.

So it becomes imperative on the manufacturers and the Inspection & Quarantine Bureau to ensure that products which are exported pass the laid down standards.
