Textile mills urged to get ISO registration – Khawaja

In a bid to penetrate world market, textile manufacturers of Pakistan should register themselves with the International Standards Organization (ISO), opined Anees Khawaja, Chairman of All Pakistan Bed Sheet & Upholstery Manufacturers Association (APBUMA), during a seminar on 'Selection of Dyestuffs'.

The seminar was organized by APBUMA in co-operation with Trade Development Authority of Pakistan (TDAP) and Clariant, wherein the APBUMA Chairman said that, the economy of the country, especially the textile industry and services was facing various challenges.

Limited enterprise capacity to meet international buyer's requirements, at a time when there is constant increase in demand for quality, safety, environment and social standards in global markets, was the major issue for low income and developing countries like Pakistan, to achieve sustainable growth, said Khawaja.

While the fulfillments of national and international values encourages enterprise efficiency and competitiveness, via global trade, as well as protect consumer's rights of health and safety resulting into socio-economic development of the country; Non-compliance of all such requirements results into loss of businesses thereby, affecting the economy of the country.

Attaining quality, environment and social accountability in par with international standards is one of the major steps to achieve product competitiveness in domestic as well as international markets, along with price and delivery factors. In a bid to fulfill foreign buyers' requirements, the industry should adopt modern technology, underlined Khawaja.

Khwaja further pointed that, quality control was the major requirement to penetrate any market successfully and to satisfy the customers. He further added that, the textile industry should manufacture cloth and garments considering the environmental situation and health hazards without using colours or dyes and chemicals that are injurious to human health. The textile business has become complicated due to environmental and health issues, he said.

TDAP is assisting the country's textile industry to procure Oeko-Tex100, ISO-9000, AATCC, GOTS and the like certifications, informed Bashir Saleh, Director General of TDAP. Policy and objectives of any organization are based on systems and standards used by international companies, he said. And these systems and standards assist the organization to formulate and execute the steps to achieve the desired goals.
