China to enforce new standards of garment chemical content

May '12
Considering the growing consumer awareness against hazardous chemical content in textiles and clothing, China proposes to enforce new national standards in August.

In recent times, a huge number of clothing and accessories batches were disqualified by the Guangzhou Quality Supervision Bureau, when it was found that they contained a variety of toxic and hazardous substances.

Sample batches of garments, innerwear, children's clothing, etc, either imported or produced locally were found to have high levels of formaldehyde, pH value, biodegradable carcinogenic aromatic amine dyes, which are hazardous to human health.

A recent report of the Guangzhou Quality Supervision Bureau reveals that, that 12 batches of pajamas and innerwear products were disqualified, with the rejection as high as 24 percent.

Another report on children's clothes was equally bleak. Around 18 percent of the batches were disqualified.

Amongst the hazardous chemicals found were, formaldehyde, biodegradable carcinogenic aromatic amine dyes that were health-threatening substances.

One batch of clothing even contained prohibited biodegradable carcinogenic aromatic amine dyes.

Experts have welcomed the move to enforce new standards, as it will help the Chinese textile and apparel sector to withstand the challenges facing them.
