Meeting EU standards vital for textile exporters

Sep '08
With the significant slowdown in demand from the US market, EU has become extremely important for Chinese exporters.

However, the product standards of EU are rigid, thus, causing problems for Chinese enterprises. Even though textile and clothing exporters pay attention to quality and safety standards, they are required to meet EU's environmental protection standards as well.

It becomes really difficult for manufacturers since they are able to pass local quality standards but are unqualified by the EU authorities.

The three EU standards, namely Oeko-Tex Standard 100, REACH, and PROS, are the main source of problems for Chinese exporters.

According to statistics, of the total 1436 batches of textile and clothes products exported by the enterprises in Changshu city, Jiangsu Province, 106 batches failed to meet these standards.

It seems that Chinese exporters are also facing issues in some other areas, like inappropriate labeling and so on.

Experts say that though Chinese Government has implemented several standards regarding chemical content in textiles and other products, it is not enough.

They advised that enterprises must understand in detail the EU rules and reform their manufacturing process so that products meet these standards.
