Clothing exporters pay scant respect to labeling requirements
Jun '09
Recently, from an analysis of data of textiles and garments exported in the first half of 2008, the Dongguan Import & Export Inspection and Quarantine Department found that the blocking of export goods due to wrong labeling accounted for 71 percent of all the textiles and garment that failed export quality.

The department has kept on advising and reminding all clothing export enterprises to attach great importance to the question of labeling and that labels must be sewn on clothes with all the necessary details imprinted on the label so that their export consignments are not blocked due to lack of details.

It is known fact, that the small clothing label contains numerous contents and labels are essential to manufacturers, brands, retailers, consumers and any party involved in the supply chain of the industry and in recent times, labels have become the focus of technical trade measures in exports to the EU and US.

However, according to Dongguan Import & Export Inspection and Quarantine Department, the related export enterprises in China pay little concern to the clothing label which is leading to more troubles for these companies in the form of blocking of consignments by the importing countries.

According to standards, provisions of the contents must be marked with product or its specifications; the use of raw materials, components and content; washing method; product life period; product standards number; product quality level and storage conditions and many other requirements. .
