Japan imposes chemical regulations on textile imports

May '12
The new self-regulatory norms related to use of hazardous chemicals in textile and clothing products imported by Japan, is expected to bring short-term pressures on the Chinese textile exporters.

According to a new posting on the website of Japan Chemical Fibre Association, it has made it compulsory for all textile and clothing imports to carry a test report on specific azo dyes content.

Japan imports around 80 percent of its overall textile and garment imports from China, so this decision has set in a panic-wave among Chinese textile exporters.

The implementation of new standards is bound to increase the cost of export enterprises in China, and will bring some trade risks in the short-term.

The Japanese have followed the trend set by the US and EU countries earlier, which prohibited use of aromatic amines in azo dyes as it as could create carcinogenic effect.
