Bureau Veritas to verify Egyptian cotton
Mar '17
Bureau Veritas Consumer Products Services (Bureau Veritas) has entered into a partnership for the next five years with the Cotton Egypt Association (CEA) to provide it with testing and auditing services. The Egyptian cotton logo, a mark of authenticity, will now be placed on products that have been verified to be true Egyptian cotton by Bureau Veritas. 
Bureau Veritas is leader in testing, inspection/audit, advisory and certification services. Under the exclusive agreement, it will provide Cotton Egypt Association the conformity assessment services to verify that the materials are traceable to confirmed lots of true Egyptian cotton at any stage of production.
The Egyptian cotton logo is a mark that helps restore faith as to the authenticity of products bearing the claim, Egyptian cotton. It demonstrates that the CEA has certified that the product is true Egyptian cotton by conforming to the requirements in the factory audits and testing services and is ready for retail.
Bureau Veritas will carry out audits of the production capability and performance of a factory against Bureau Veritas' fibre traceability facility assessment methodology. A corrective action plan will help the facilities who do not achieve an acceptable score within the material traceability audit. It will also perform quarterly audits at retailers, based on a list agreed to by the CEA, to check product information against the database to confirm the traceability records in place.
Mark Agius, senior vice president for Bureau Veritas Consumer Products Services in Europe, Middle East and Africa commented, "This exclusive partnership with CEA for the next five years takes our support for producers and buyers of Egyptian Cotton to the next level, enabling retailers, brands and their supply chain to easily access this scheme."
CEA is a non-profit association established in 2005 with support from the ministry of industry and foreign trade. The Association's mission is to protect Egyptian cotton's legacy of luxury, working closely with local and international companies involved in the Egyptian cotton supply chain. (SV)
