EU requires textile firms to make eco-friendly exports
Apr '08
Experts have observed that in recent years, EU has carried out a number of severe protection measures with regard to textile products. Since it is one of the major export markets for Zhejiang Province, local industry enterprises have been urged to pay attention to all of these related EU laws.

Most of these measures have been certified for ensuring that textile goods exported to EU are eco-friendly.

The 67/648EC law issued in 1997 forbids the use of 22 kinds of aromatic amine which can cause cancer. Besides, the 2001/C96E/18 law issued in 2001 defines the content of aromatic amine which should not exceed 30mg/kg.

Moreover, the 2002/61/EC law issued in 2002, prohibits the usage of aminoazobenzene while the 2003/3/EC law issued in 2003, forbids the usage of a particular blue colorant (a mixture of EC.NO.405-665-4 and CAS.NO118685-33-0).

By complying with these regulations, China can ensure a consistent export to the EU market and this in turn could help its economy grow.

This apart, by acquiring the Eco-Label of EU through voluntary application, Chinese textile enterprises can strengthen their domestic market and gain popularity for their products.
