Chinese textiles may have new coding standard next year

Chinese textiles are likely to have new coding standard next year. At a recent seminar on ‘Textile goods coding standard’, speakers said that in view of development of new textile raw materials, fabric structure, composition and other aspects, current Chinese textile fabrics’ standardized coding formulation is in a backward stage.
 
Along with the development of textile technology, new production processes and new products have been developed, and due to lack of proper coding standards, the fabric production and sales figures appear disorderly, speakers said.
 
Moreover, companies develop their own respective corporate product codes, so in the textile industry, the same product appears under different names and under different codes. This non-uniform coding has seriously hindered the exchange of information and it does not benefit the industry, especailly while carrying out e-commerce in textile fabrics, speakers added.
 
Textile fabric in China is generally divided into five categories—cotton, wool, linen, silk and man-made fibre, with the first three categories accounting for about 60 percent.
 
About two years ago, a standard coding project was approved by the China Textile Information Centre for cotton, wool and linen categories.
 
After much research, industry analysis, discussion and constant improvement, the draft standard coding was ready and was discussed at the two-day seminar, which saw participation of professors from the Beijing Union University, experts as well as representatives of some textile enterprises.
 
The three categories of fabrics are coded in a scientific manner, showing versatility, practicality and scalability. The full digital code would cover information about the basic physical and chemical properties of the fabric and in future, the code will help people to learn about the major raw material, yarn structure and other information.
 
Attendees were of the view that the development of textile fabrics coding will greatly facilitate the production, sales, logistics, e-commerce and other relevant information processing and exchange of information.
 
China Textile Information Centre deputy director Fu Guangwei said the standard coding for textile fabric industry would greatly enhance the development of information on the industry, and would also be conducive to the establishment of product traceability system. In the future, the coding would help trace the fabric’s textile chain, and thus standardize the development of textile enterprises to improve their social responsibility.
 
Fu Guangwei said the centre would next take up silk and non-woven fabrics coding research and development work.
