TEGLU demands implementation of textile import laws

05
Jun '10
Management of the Textile, Garments and Leather Workers Union (TEGLU) is continuously asking the Ghana Standard Board (GSB) to execute laws to administer import of textiles within the country.

Meanwhile, it is also making the textile importers aware that, they should get their designs registered with the GSB, prior to importing the same to the country.

According to Abraham Koomson, General Secretary of TEGLU, those are requisite procedures and the concerned officials should insist on their compliance so as to prevent any imminent loss of imported textiles, which may lack in complying with these laws.

The efforts are mainly in the form of reminders, as the Union desires the textile importers to be aware of the same as they conduct a meet on June 3.

Koomson further said that, though they suggest complete abolition of these goods, but yet it was required that, these directives were repeated to the importers, prior to their actual implementation.

He further stated that, the rule says that, the textile importers should lay down their designs before Ghana Standard Board (GSB) for approval, as also the location for delivery of those imported goods, should be properly scrutinized prior to importation. However, this has yet not been implemented and the importers are acting as per their will. But, now they are making sure that the importers are made to act in accordance with these procedures.

The Union is keen to get in touch with the textile importers, to make them aware that they should all at once apply for getting their designs vetted by GSB prior to importing the same. Thus, it is just a mode of conveying to them the directives that, the government is about to implement, he said.
