Seminars on textile and clothing safety by Bureau Veritas

Bureau Veritas Consumer Products Services UK – headquartered in Warrington, Cheshire – have launched a new series of training & seminar sessions for manufacturers, retailers and importers of textile in Europe.

The seminars, delivered at Bureau Veritas CPS laboratory in Warrington, will cover the safety and quality issues related to textiles, including children's clothing. Topics include textile testing, flammability in textile, deign and safety of children's clothing and restricted substances in textiles. Bureau Veritas also propose a session on the REACH Directive.

Additionally, because global companies now have to face an increasing number of environmental, social and ethical issues, Bureau Veritas' environmental & social technical experts will deliver seminars courses on “burning issues” such as Ecodesign and Corporate Social Responsibility.

The educational programme, delivered by market-sector experts, will be of value to all levels of staff, from trainee technologists through to buyers and designers. Delegates will have the opportunity to visit Bureau Veritas' laboratory, see some tests performed and have informal discussions with BV technical consultants.

Jonathon Thackray, Bureau Veritas, said: “Manufacturers and distributors need to stay up to date with the ever growing plethora of standards affecting the consumer goods market. This is especially true for companies trading on a global scale as they have to deal with a jungle of national and regional regulations. Our new seminar programme will help professionals understand what they need to do to comply with the current legislations.”

“Our programme does not only cover quality assurance; it does also approach environmental and social questions, with sessions on Ecodesign and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), since we are aware that there is an increasing demand from consumers and retailers for greener and more ethical products. For example, manufacturers are now asked to measure the carbon footprint of their products & operations or to prove that they do not use child-labour. A lot of professionals are new to these topics and our seminars can show them how these questions shall be addressed through the supply chain. ”
