Textile & garment exports to US will attract new CPSC rules

The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced on September 16, the imposition of new regulation on the textile and garment products imported to the US market.

The new regulation created by the CPSC has also got the approval of the US Congress as early as August 14 this year. The law comprises numerous regulations which will come into effect at different points of time.

In accordance with this new law, all textile and garment products exported to the US market will have to adhere to the norms defined, starting from February 2009.

The commission has assured to pay strict attention to product safety regulations and has noted that unlike the earlier practice of re-exporting products found violating safety rules, the CPSC would now have the right to destroy these products completely.

Additionally, enterprises found guilty of breaching the regulations would be fined US $15 million which is much higher than the punitive charges imposed earlier. Increase in the number of infringements reported in the past 18 months has been one of the major reasons behind evolving an even more stringent regulation.

This would ensure that the demand of importers for quality textile and garment products is effectively met. Moreover, the new law lays substantial stress on safety regulations for baby clothes. This includes supervision on not only the kind of fabric used but also on the quality of ribbons and other decorative add-ons.

The new law has also completely banned export of clothes with cord to the US which were traded even earlier despite prohibition. This serves as a warning to Vietnamese producers who are asked to put a stop to the production of such products.

Goods meant for exports to the US would be deemed safe only upon recognition by an organization or a laboratory acknowledged by the US International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC).
