Intertek, a Total Quality Assurance provider to industries worldwide, has been approved by Vietnam government to conduct testing for the formaldehyde and Azo dyes industry requirement for various textile products, including apparel, home textiles, footwear, carpets and curtains.

The approval from the Ministry of Industry and Trade (MOIT) qualifies the company's textile laboratories in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi to identify formaldehyde and Azo dye content in various textile products as outlined in the ministry's December 2015 circular, said a company release claiming that Intertek was the first foreign company to achieve the distinction.

Both the Intertek laboratories are equipped with GC-MS and UV-VIS testing equipment to meet the government conditions and offer regular (3 working days) and same day-service (five hours) to its clients including Vietnam's textile brands, retailers and manufacturers.

“It is our honour to be the first foreign third-party laboratory approved by MOIT for this new regulation,” said , Thanh Nguyen, Country Managing Director Intertek Vietnam, adding that the company had been facilitating rapid development in the apparel and footwear manufacturing industry in the southeast Asian country while assuring the quality and safety of its exports.

“We are constantly looking for new opportunities in supporting our customers in assurance, testing, inspection and certification,” he said.

Accredited to conduct physical and chemical testing for AATCC, BSI, GB and ISO standards, Intertek in Vietnam offers a wide range of services for apparel, footwear, fashion accessories and leather goods. (SH)
