Two Tesco suppliers accredited SDC CAS

Jun '07
The first dyehouses anywhere in the world to be accredited under the Society's Colour Accreditation Scheme (SDC CAS) are Sp Apparels Ltd (India) and Ocean Lanka (Sri Lanka) – both suppliers to Tesco.

The scheme, which aims to provide colour consistency for the global textile supply chain, was adopted by Tesco soon after its launch in 2006. Both Sp Apparels and Ocean Lanka were keen to confirm their supply credentials under the scheme and it means they now operate SDC CAS-approved procedures for visual and instrumental colour approval.

Comments the SDC's technical officer, Andrew Filarowski,
'Both companies have complied with the strict and rigorous procedures demanded by the scheme. At least two people fully understand the technicalities of colour measurement and can apply their knowledge and expertise on a day-to-day basis.'

He continues, 'The scheme also ensures that the specialist equipment used is suitable for the task in hand and is properly calibrated and maintained to the highest standards. This ensures consistent assessment and uniform colour communication throughout the world.'

International, independent and integrated, SDC CAS is attracting attention from major retailers. It is the only independent scheme for the global textile supply chain.
