Apparels meant for export to be tested for PH value

Dec '08
It has been learnt from related departments, that the inspection and quarantine department in Zhejiang Province will test the PH value of garments meant for exports (which require test), starting from February 1, 2009. This has been contemplated in order to improve safety and sanitation level of garments exported from Zhejiang Province.

According to the reports, only those garments which require test will be targeted for the PH value test including those consignments which have been intercepted before shipment. The testing period is mainly divided in to three phases, namely, preparation period, buffer period and strict enforcement period.

Preparation period will start from February 1, 2009 during which exporting companies will need to pay special attention to chemicals used during processing of fabrics to ensure they do not carry excessive PH value.

Buffer period will start concurrently with the preparation period, but will last only till April 1, 2009. Apparels and fabrics meant for exports will be tested for PH value under GB18401-2003 (the national basic security technical specifications of textile products).

Strict enforcement period will begin from April 1, 2009. PH value in apparels and fabrics meant for exports will have to be in strict accordance with the basic security technical requirements, required under GB18401-2003.
