Close attention to the new export standards of textile and clothing
From the Jiangsu Zhangjiagang inspection and Quarantine Bureau, the international environmental Textile Association (OEKO-TEX) has released a significant update of the 2016 edition of the OEKO-TEX100 standard this year, and several kinds of mildew inhibitor, phthalate, organotin, carcinogenic dyes and other substances are controlled. For example, 9 kinds of chlorinated phenol are added to the list of restrictions, which are often used as anti mildew, anticorrosion and antibacterial agents in the weaving size, but are teratogenic and carcinogenic. Chlorophenol residues in the fibers will also form dioxins in the destruction of old clothes, causing persistent harm.
The increasingly harsh green barriers to the textile industry has increasingly highlighted the impact of the textile industry, according to statistics, since this year, China's export textile and clothing have been reported by foreign countries more than 100 cases, in the situation of high technical barriers, industrial risk prevention can not be relaxed.
For the large export enterprises to survive and develop in the competitive international market, the Zhangjiagang inspection and Quarantine Bureau suggests: on the one hand, we should strengthen the sense of social responsibility. In time, we should pay attention to the dynamic technology and regulations of the textile industry, increase the investment of "green technology", reduce the harmful emissions, win social respect and realize the sustainable development of the enterprise; two, the quality control is strictly implemented. On the basis of strengthening the control of raw and auxiliary materials on the basis of strengthening the control of raw and auxiliary materials, it is necessary to strictly implement the inspection of finished products to ensure the quality of products meet the requirements and avoid subsequent quality disputes.
