BIS-CII workshop on FR standards in technical textiles

Aug '15
The Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) along with the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) will organise a workshop on 'Flame Retardant Standards in Technical Textiles' on September 1, 2015, in New Delhi.
 
Besides senior officials from the BIS and CII, the half-day workshop will be attended by some eminent people in the field including Dr. Arindam Basu, director general, Northern India Textile Research Associaiton (NITRA); Dr. VK Kothari from department of textile technology, IIT-Delhi; and Umasankar Mahapatra, head – Technial Marketing & Product Innovation, Arvind Limited.
 
TUV Rheinland India will be represented by technical manager Ashok Mehra and regional director Charan Singh.
 
In addition, representatives from companies like Reliance Industries, JMD Group, Delkon, and Shri Balaji Exims will also be part of the workshop. Representatives of Fibre2Fashion and its division Technicaltextile.net would also be attending.
 
While there is a broad agreement on the need for flame retardant standards, there are certain areas where stakeholders need clarity. The workshop will bridge the gap and take a step forward towards securing lives.
 
The theme for the inaugural session will be 'Collaborating for a fire-safe India – The role of technical textiles'. Key speakers will be from the Ministry of Textiles, Government of India, and from BIS.
This would be followed by a technical session on 'Understanding the FR Textiles Order and its implications for the stakeholders'. Key speakers will be from BIS, Flame Retardants Association of India (FRAI), and NITRA.
 
Further, participants from various stakeholder groups will be asked to share their views and concerns in a panel discussion.
 
The discussion would also seek to address issues like the role technical chemical textile can play in fire-prevention and can India become a supplier to the world, mandating higher standards and overcoming the implementation challenge through closer coordinating, and liability issues pertaining to the FR order.
