Govt sits up & takes notice of high chemical content in clothing

Jun '09
On reports emanating from the countries of the European Union regarding Chinese clothing containing toxic chemicals, the Vietnamese Standard Measurement and Quality Department has taken notice of the same and is taking adequate measures.

The department has taken samples of children's clothing from different exporters, but experts aver that in absence of rules and regulations governing the same, it will be difficult to regulate the export of this kind of products.

The department has the facilities to conduct tests to measure the formaldehyde content in the clothing but does not have a policy measure in place to deal with the same, in case the chemical exceeds the permissible levels.

Experts are also expressing surprise that despite having such a big export sector, Vietnam has still not found the need to have a regulation on the same despite the fact that, high content of chemicals can lead to the clothing being returned to the country of origin.

The more worrying part for the regulators is that a lot of clothing is imported from China for re-export purpose and they do not carry the correct labeling which can harm the reputation of the Vietnamese readymade garment sector as a whole.
