Hohenstein further expands its international presence

01
Jun '10
Competent quality assessments of textile products by independent organisations such as the Hohenstein Institute serve companies in European and North American target markets as a reliable basis for decision-making in the procurement of goods in Asia and other textile producing regions. In view of the flow of goods into the US, the Boennigheim-based testing and research institute has greatly expanded its presence in Latin America. Four new contact offices have been opened – one in the Dominican Republic, another for El Salvador/Guatemala, and two in Colombia. A further office representing the wide range of services offered by the Hohenstein Institute has also been set up in Ahmedabad. It is the fifth Hohenstein contact office on the Indian subcontinent in addition to existing counterparts in Mumbai, Delhi, Tirupur and Colombo (Sri Lanka). The contact office that has been present in Turkey for many years has moved into new premises and has had a new address since 14 May.

All the new contact offices (with the exception of Guatemala) are official information centres of the Oeko-Tex Association. Their primary mission is to handle product certification according to Oeko- Tex Standard 100. In addition, interested companies have available to them the numerous consulting, testing and certification services of the Hohenstein Institute. These services range from testing compliance with legal requirements to the evaluation of product characteristics such as size, workmanship or wear comfort, and beyond, to providing evidence of special functions such as the antimicrobial effects of textiles.

With reference to the import of textile products into the US, the Hohenstein Institute has been accredited by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) as an independent testing laboratory for determination of total lead content in products for children 12 years of age or younger (CPSC Identification Number 1058). Authorities in the US, however, also recognise certification according to Oeko-Tex Standard 100 as proof of compliance with current limits for total lead content. Each Oeko-Tex Certificate issued bears a corresponding reference to this fact.
