The CBP is being conducted in nine centres—Bangalore, Coimbatore, Chennai, Kolkata, Ahmedabad, Ludhiana, Varanasi, Mumbai and New Delhi—began on May 9 and will culminate on May 18. They are being conducted with the aim of improving understanding of the Indian exporters/manufacturers about the requirements of quality and various compliances for the Japanese markets.
The CBP involves presentation by the Japanese experts on: differences of quality requirements between Japanese buyers and Western buyers, quality and compliance in Japan and Japanese Industrial Standards (JIS) overview, and the banned substances in Japanese market.
Subsequent to the CBP, the Textiles Committee will work with QTEC on upgrading some of its 19 laboratories in the country, which have equipment mainly to test standards for exports to the Western markets. The Committee will also consider setting up of QTEC laboratories at few of its facilities.
Currently, only 2 per cent of India’s textile and apparel exports are meant for Japan. This share can be increased if Indian manufacturers and exporters explore opportunities in Japan and improve their quality for conformity assessment for Japanese markets. (RKS)
