Bureau Veritas to launch Smart Wear testing solution

Feb '17
Bureau Veritas, together with 7layers, leaders in testing, inspection, advisory and certification services for the Smartworld, have announced they will be launching their new suite of Smart Wear testing solutions for smart clothing at the Mobile World Congress in Spain on March 1. TexRay's AiQ Smart Clothing will co-present with Bureau Veritas at the event.

Bureau Veritas' strategic partner AiQ Smart Clothing will be showcasing its BioMan range of sports products that successfully completed the Smart Wear program from Bureau Veritas. AiQ will also provide insights into the value of testing for the BioMan collection.

"As two mature industries converge, there are many challenges facing manufacturers of smart wear products. There is a need for industry standards, the need to address consumer concerns and the real issue of understanding the regulatory framework for this new category of product. Our unique position in having global capabilities covering traditional physical and chemical testing as well as connectivity testing meant we were able to address these challenges," said Elizabeth Hausler, VP of global technical services at Bureau Veritas Consumer Products Services and technical lead for the Smart Wear Solutions Programme.

"We first carried out a comprehensive consumer panel evaluation to identify the real concerns of users. We then adapted existing well-known standards covering both physical, chemical as well connectivity requirements. Moving forward, we will also continue to leverage our leading industry position including our chair position within standards bodies such as the ASTM Committee on Smart Textiles (D13.50) and AATCC's research committee on Electronically Integrated Textiles (RA111)," added Hausler.
