China rejects over 10% of imported clothing in 2011
Jul '12
More than 10 percent of the clothing items imported by China during last year were rejected on grounds of inappropriate Chinese labelling, and low standards with respect to colour fastness, fibre content and AZO dyes, according to a report by the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine of China.
The report said that US$ 10 million worth of 730,000 clothing items imported by China during last year failed inspection.
Spain, Turkey and Italy were the top three producer countries whose clothing faced rejection. Of 14,959 clothing batches inspected during last year, 38 percent of the articles had their origin in one of these three countries.
Chinese people are keen on purchasing clothing items from the three countries, but financial slump and management issues have impacted the product quality of these countries, experts said.
Vietnam, Bangladesh and India were among the developing nations whose clothing was found to be below standards during inspection, according to the report. 
Lack of latest technology and poor quality control caused clothing of several popular brands from India and Vietnam to face rejection, the report said.
Since joining the World Trade Organization (WTO) in 2000, China has enhanced its supervision skills and raised its standards. However, the defect rate of imported clothing in China has reduced over the past few years, say experts.
