Texanlab Laboratories Pvt. Ltd., India, a member of the DyStar Group, has now been approved by The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), USA to test for the presence of Lead as per 16 CFR 1303 in children's garments and made-ups. Testing reports for lead content in paints and surface coatings are currently mandatory for all children's apparel exported to the USA.

Texanlab was founded in 1973. It is today one of the largest independent textile testing institutes in Asia and at the forefront of ecological analysis and testing. The company offers world class instruments and techniques backed up by experienced and skilled employees.

Rahul Bhajekar, Chief Operations Officer of Texanlab, is proud of the achieved CPSC approval:
“We can now be an even stronger partner for US retailers, brands and textile processors. We help them to keep harmful chemicals out of the textile supply chain and to make garments safe for people.”
