Bangla Textile Act makes factory registration mandatory
The Textile Act-2018 passed in Bangladesh recently has made it compulsory for textile company owners to get registered with the department of textile for running their businesses. The act brings all sub-sectors, including primary textiles, readymade garments, allied textiles, packaging and accessories, and buying houses, under the department’s control.

The Textile Bill, passed by the parliament on September 12, became an act with effect from October 1. It declared the textile department as the ‘sponsoring authority’ for the textile and clothing industry, according to Bangladesh media reports.

Under the act, the government will establish a one-stop service (OSS) centre for entrepreneurs and investors to receive services, including approval, clearance and licence, within the shortest possible time.

The proposed centre would also help implement projects or moves related to the sector. The department’s director general will be the textile registrar and the textile company owners will get registration certificates within 60 days of filling their applications.

The act empowers textile registrar to suspend or cancel registration for providing false information.

The law was enacted to meet the domestic apparel demand, raise exports, generate jobs, attract foreign direct investment, increase global competitiveness and introduce need-based curriculum for the textile sector.

The department will be responsible for inspecting the quality and standard of various components, including paint and other chemicals, used in textile products. (DS)
