REACH programme to benefit Indian textile export units

Feb '13
The Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemical Substances (REACH) programme is expected to greatly benefit the textile export units in India, including those in Karur, TUV Rheinland India Director (Finance and General Administration) Bhaskar has said.
 
The public-private partnership programme was undertaken by TUV Rheinland in collaboration with Europe’s largest development finance company DEG Germany.
 
The programme was aimed at helping the home textile units to follow the best international practices for “Substances of Very High Concern” and fulfilling REACH regulations EC No.1907/2006 adopted by the European buyers, Mr. Bhaskar said while addressing the high-level Summit and Best Practice Exchange Forum seminar organized to commemorate successful conclusion of the programme.
 
Thirteen textile manufacturing units availed necessary training and consultancy under the programme to bridge the gaps in their supply chain and procurement, while using the opportunity to showcase their abilities to consistently manufacture REACH compliant products, Mr. Bhaskar said.
 
The Apparel Export Promotion Council (AEPC) and the Handloom Export Cloth Manufacturers’ Association also participated in the programmed aimed at facilitating better identification of intrinsic properties of chemical substances, well in advance right from the stage of raw material to the final product in home textile units, to ensure better protection of environment and human health, TUV Rheinland General Manager, Industry Services, Shanmughasundaram.
 
Mr. Bhaskar said upon the completion of the pilot programme which had begun in September 2011, TUV Rheinland is now willing to offer the programme commercially to individual home textile manufacturing units. 
 
This would help the entrepreneurs to deal with issues like registration, notification, awareness and implementation of the REACH standards and to get their projects approved, while averting rejection.
