Bedding samples fail to meet Chinese quality standards

Sep '13
Beijing Consumer Association recently announced that Beijing market bedding test results showed that 63.4 percent of the total samples tested failed to meet the national standards.
 
The tests were made on 26 quality indicators involving fibre content, washing dimensional change, colour fastness, pH, instructions for use, etc.
 
Colour fastness and pH values are basic safety technical indicators of textile products.
 
This is not the first instance of bedding samples failing to meet national quality standards. Last month, the Shanghai Quality and Technical Supervision tested samples of 30 batches of products, where it found seven batches failing to meet the specified standards.
 
Meanwhile, the Beijing Industry and Commerce Bureau has seized products of two brands involving carcinogenic aromatic amine dyes.
 
The problem is caused due to inadequate control of the upstream printing companies, and poor corporate quality control awareness, according to China Textile Association secretary Xiaohong.
 
She explained that the problem may not only be because of textile printing and dyeing enterprises, and it may also occur due to ineffective testing during raw materials introduction stage, which may cause the final product to have more pH value or other issues like inadequate colour fastness.
 
Hence, enterprises should strengthen their supply chain management and process control system and remove unqualified and sub-standard products, she said.
 
She added that the next step would be to allow enterprises to enhance the quality consciousness.
