Hohenstein opens new contact office in Santo Domingo

19

For the purpose of provided targeted support in the area of quality assurance to textile and clothing manufacturers as well as buyers and trading companies in the DR-CAFTA region with respect to the flow of goods into the US, the Hohenstein Institute opened a new contact office in Santo Domingo (Dominican Republic) at the beginning of March.

Interested companies now have access to a broad range of independent quality assessments and product certifications, ranging from reviews of statutory requirements to the evaluation of different product properties such as fit, workmanship or wearing comfort, to the verification of special functions such as the anti-microbial effect of textiles. Furthermore, in its role as the official representative of the International Oeko-Tex Association, the new Hohenstein contact office will also be looking after textile harmful substance testing as per the Oeko-Tex Standard 100.

Oeko-Tex certifications play a particularly important role in the export of children's products to the US, since each Oeko-Tex certificate confirms that the tested article complies with the applicable CPSIA legislation with regard to lead.
