Bangladesh is going to establish its first ever world class testing laboratory to carry out chemicals and dyes tests of exportable apparel items in the country, informed Mr. Abdus Salam Murshedy, President of Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA).

The apparel exporters now test the samples of exportable garments for certification from foreign testing firms. In order to set up this testing firm, BGMEA will sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Spanish giant clothing retailer brand 'Inditex' in Spain on April 29.

Inditex Group is one of the world's giant fashion retailers, which has 4,607 stores in around 74 countries and has more than 100 companies functional in textile design, manufacturing and distribution areas.

This clothing retailer brand of Spain will offer all the technical and other required support to set up the projected testing lab, said BGMEA President. Each test from the proposed testing firm will cost $30. While, some recognized testing firms such as Bureau Veritas, SGS and ITS charge $200 to $300 for each test, he informed.

Teachers, students and experts from the Department of Chemistry of Dhaka University will combine forces in the projected establishment.
