TUV SUD partners IGFA for testing & certification

May '19
TUV SUD, the German training, auditing, testing and certification giant, has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the International Garment Fair Association (IGFA). Through this partnership with IGFA and its members, TUV SUD will offer an extensive knowledge repository and be deemed as the partner of choice for testing and certification services.

After signing this association, TUV SUD will be regarded as the preferred quality and technical partner for IGFA and its members for their quality assurance requirements. Through this alliance, TUV SUD will also extend its support to IGFA and its members and further enable them to leverage technical guidance to upskill their members

Capitalising on its global expertise, TUV SUD will support IGFA and its members in the areas of quality assurance, inspection and auditing. The partnership will enable IGFA to leverage technical guidance provided by TUV SUD. Similarly, TUV SUD will be the technical partner of IGFA for its various awareness events and programmes on quality, sustainability, energy, infrastructure and lean management.

"TUV SUD, with its world-class laboratories, technical resources and auditing capabilities will further support IGFA in assisting their members and to align requirements of the buyer community, in terms of updating their system compliance or technical capabilities or even benchmarking their product quality to be the best in the industry. Globalisation has shrunk boundaries for trade which have come even closer with online retail. Brands that offer genuine quality apparel consistently are primed to be preferred by consumers who look for consistently high standards of quality. IGFA and its members are well placed to benefit immensely from this partnership as they have the opportunity to steadfastly maintain reputation and consumer trust," Lalit Thukral, chairman EAC (AEPC) & chairman IGFA, said .

"We are proud to partner with IGFA and extend our services. The apparel industry in India is huge - hence, manufacturers are constantly under pressure to deliver consistency, quality and safety. Further, cost - cutting, ever changing trends and complex interactions ladder up to the pressure. It is necessary to address these challenges with technical knowledge and expertise. Through this association, TUV SUD affirms its commitment to help the apparel industry deliver the best quality products. Through our collective effort we are confident that all the members will be immensely benefited," said Ezhilan Neelan, senior vice president, Product Services, TUV SUD South Asia, said.

With its wide network of labs and experts across key markets including ASEAN, European Union, the US and UK, and South Asia, TUV SUD has in-depth familiarity with compliance in exporting and importing nations. Across the globe, TUV SUD works with leading international brands of repute to help them focus on quality and consistency. (RR)
