It has been witnessed the strong growth and development of the Vietnamese Textile-Garment in recent years. The textile and clothing products which are produced in Vietnam have been penetrating to global and domestic markets, making the contributions to the development of the national economy.

The Industry export turn-over climbed up to US$ 9.08 billions in 2009, compared to US$ 1.87 billions in 2001. The Industry has proven to be the key industrial sector in creating jobs and stabilizing the social security, employing more than 2.000.000 labours.

The Textile Research Institute which is an applied research Institute has gone along with the Industry for more than 40 years. It is the member of the American Association of Chemists and Colorists.

Its Textile Testing Centre is certified ISO/IEC 17025: 2005 and accredited by the Asian Pacific Laboratory Accreditation Corporation (APLAC), and is the first laboratory assigned by the Ministry of Industry and Trade to conduct the inspection and supervision of compliance of the textiles regarding the contents of formaldehyde and carcinogenic aromatic amines splited off from azo dyes.

Right in the period 2002/2003, the Institute understood the problems and done some probing researches with the assistances provided by the administrative agencies.

In the bilateral meeting between the Government of Vietnam and the Government of Kingdom of Belgium in December 2003, two sides reaffirmed the expectations to support the development of the Textile-Garment Industry of Vietnam and the Government of Belgium would support to set up a Textile Ecological Laboratory under the Project “Strengthening the Textile Research Institute's capacity of conducting the research, training and experimental development of textile techniques, phase II” during 2008-2010.

And the Ministry of Industry and Trade has approved the Project “Upgrading the Equipment and the Textile Ecological Laboratory of the Textile Research Institute”.

The Projects has been implemented for two years until now, the Ecological Textile Laboratory is completed. Today in the atmosphere of welcoming the 65th anniversary of the National Day, 1000th anniversary of Hanoi foundation and 15th anniversary of Vietnam National Textile-Garment Group, the Textile Research Institute hold an opening ceremony of the Textile Ecological Laboratory.

The Textile Ecological Laboratory under the Textile Testing Centre is capable to carry out basic tests of quality of textiles according to internationally accepted testing standards, namely AATCC, ASTM, ISO, DIN, JIS, TCVN, and tests of safety and ecological items of textiles: the safety requirements of textiles required by the American Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), including Textile Flammability – 16 CFR 1610, Children's wears flammability - 16 CFR 1615/1616), Lead content (total) under the CPSC Test Method CPSC-SH-E1002-08, the ecological requirements of textiles required by the import countries: Formaldehyde content, Pentachloro Phenol content, carcinogenic aromatic amines released from azo dyes, extractable heavy metals on the textiles.

When the Textile Ecological Laboratory is put into operation, the Textile Testing Centre can provide customers with a comprehensive solution, including information, consultancy on compliance requirements, testing, certification of products, consultancy on quality management and improvement of production processing procedures in order to meet the safety and environmental-friendly requirements.
