SGS's Uzbek lab gets ISO 17025 for cotton yarn testing

Inspection, verification, testing and certification company SGS's laboratory in Tashkent, Uzbekistan has become the first independent cotton yarn testing laboratory with ISO 17025 accreditation in Central Asia. Established in 2016, SGS's yarn testing services are helping Uzbekistan's growing cotton industry add value to its finished products.

ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation is the benchmark standard for technical competency, demonstrating rigorous testing standards and a meticulous laboratory management system. “The awarding of this standard to SGS in Tashkent is further evidence of the company's continued commitment to delivering the highest quality testing facilities for Uzbekistan's yarn industry,” SGS said in a statement.

The SGS laboratory is equipped with Uster Tester 5 and has integrated full High Volume Instrument Testing for raw cotton to serve the trade and the spinning mill industry.

Yarn is the transitional point in the manufacture of fabric, following raw material. To guarantee the quality of yarn to potential purchasers, it must be tested for several main factors, including yarn twist, linear density, yarn strength, yarn elongation, yarn evenness and yarn hairiness.

Uzbekistan is currently the sixth largest producer of cotton in the world, and it is the fourth largest exporter of cotton fibre. It produces around 3 million tons of raw cotton and 0.9 million tons of cotton annually.

The ISO 17025 accreditation will enable SGS in Tashkent to undertake integrated high-volume instrument testing for raw cotton to help both the export market and the domestic spinning mill industry. (RKS)
