SGS inaugurates new textile testing laboratory in Cambodia

Aug '14
The newly-inaugurated laboratory is equipped with the-state-of-the-art facilities to provide physical and restricted substances testing for the entire range of apparel and textile products and restricted substances testing for footwear products. The presence of SGS here will contribute to and strengthen the local apparel industry's ability to attain a Global standard and acceptability.

Textile and Garment Industry in Cambodia
Cambodia remains the hub of ready-made garment exports to European and USA markets. This clearly demonstrates the increasing demand for consumer product testing services in the region. Product safety, quality and compliance requirements of REACH and CPSIA regulations have increased the need for chemical test parameters in the textile supply chain. The SGS new state-of-the-art facility is fully equipped to address these restricted substance requirements as well as sustainability management in the textile and apparel industry.

Improved Textile Testing Capabilities
The new capacity and testing capabilities of the SGS Cambodia laboratory serve the country's ever expanding textile industry by providing valuable and rapid testing services to local textile and garment manufacturers needing to comply with international regulations and requirements. In addition to testing, quality inspection, compliance audits, factory assessment and loading supervision make SGS Cambodia a one-stop service provider for the country's textile industry.

Textile Testing Laboratory - Inauguration Ceremony
The inauguration ceremony, attended by over 100 participants, was held on 8th August 2014 with a ribbon cutting ceremony and laboratory tour. Management representatives from SGS Group and honorable guests such as H.E. Christoph Burgener, the Swiss Ambassador to Cambodia, Myanmar and Lao, H.E. Touchayoot Pakdi, the Thai Ambassador to Cambodia, Mr. By Pitou , the Deputy General Director of Ministry of Industrial and Handicraft, and Mr. Oknha Van Sou Ieng, the Chairman of Garment Manufacturers Association of Cambodia (GMAC) attended the inauguration ceremony.
