The relevant standards are constantly being revised and improved, and consumers’ clothing safety will be more Protection.

The new national standard changes greatly

“The scope of application of the new national standard, in addition to the original clothing, decorative textile products, also added home textile products.” Xu Jian, secretary general of the National Clothing Standardization Technical Committee introduced the new national standard by the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine and The National Standardization Management Committee was issued at the beginning of this year and applies to all types of textile products produced and sold in China.

“The new national standard has clearer standards and more operability. It is more consistent with the new changes in the apparel market in terms of indicator requirements and test methods.” The relevant experts said that the new national standard has changed compared with the old national standard implemented in 2005. Large, mainly reflected in the scope of application, terms and definitions, quality requirements, test methods, inspection rules and so on.

According to report, the new national standard will directly touch the skin of the textile products PH value range from 4.0-7.5 modified to 4.0-8.5, and increased the "sampling instructions" and consumer concerns color fastness, formaldehyde, decomposable carcinogenic aromatic amine dyes Test sampling requirements. In addition, the names of decorative baubles, handicrafts, and other decorative items were collectively referred to as “fabric arts and crafts”; the requirements for underwear, towels, swimwear, hats, and other apparel were added. In addition, some of the original test methods and inspection rules have also been changed.

The new national standard pays more attention to clothing safety

Wang Wei, secretary-general of the China Garment Association, said that implementing the new national standard will improve the safety and product quality of China's textile products, and it will be more conducive to protecting the health of consumers, and it will also help them adapt to market competition. According to relevant experts, the new national standard has made many improvements in the safety of textile products for infants and young children, and has increased the salivation color fastness and the standards for protecting the skin of infants and children.

Aromatic amine carcinogenicity has once caught the attention of consumers. In the new national standard, the limit value for the decomposition of carcinogenic aromatic amines is increased, and the limit value is ≤20 mg/kg. It is also stipulated that the list of aromatic amines is not allowed to be decomposed in the dye under reducing conditions. In this regard, the experts cited the new national standard added "4-aminoazobenzene" in the banned azo dyes, which made the total number of banned azo dyes reach 24 kinds.

It is reported that the old national standard was the first textile product safety technical specification formulated by the TBT Agreement after China's accession to the World Trade Organization. Since its implementation on January 1, 2005, it has played an active role in effectively protecting the health of Chinese consumers, regulating the textile product market, and improving the overall level of China's textile industry. "The '12th Five-Year Plan' will raise the safety of consumer products to a new level. The state will further increase the formulation and improvement of the garment industry standards and focus on garment safety issues," said Xu Jian.

New national standard promotes enterprises to fully control product quality

"Standards are the cornerstone of enterprise development. The implementation of the new national standard will have a major impact on the production and sales of apparel textile products." Wang Hao said that all apparel companies must keep abreast of the details of the new standards and focus on understanding the new standards and the original standards. Changes in the technical indicators, and effectively implement the preparatory work. "If companies use the wrong standard, it will lead to product failure, resulting in economic losses." "Apparel manufacturers simply read the new national standard is not enough, but also should effectively enhance product quality and safety and legal awareness." Xu Jian believes that In addition to in-depth understanding of the technical requirements, and prevention and control of quality risks, there is still a deeper level of work to do. Standardization is a long-term accumulation process. At present, the technical quality of some small apparel enterprise employees is relatively low, and it is impossible to fully and accurately understand the importance of national standards and related product standards. Some enterprises even do not know about the relevant standards even after they have been implemented for half a year. . Coupled with the backwardness of production equipment and processes, the management level and technical strength are weak, and even in order to reduce the cost and procurement of low surface quality materials and accessories, often lead to product quality can not be guaranteed. Therefore, to enhance corporate quality awareness, so that companies truly recognize the need to improve the quality of apparel products, standardization work can be rooted in the enterprise, throughout the entire process of industrial development, to ensure the implementation of relevant laws and regulations, and promote the better and faster development of the industry as a whole. “The garment industry advocates the establishment of a four-in-one brand concept, namely quality, innovation, rapid response and social responsibility, in which quality and social responsibility are the cornerstones of brand development. If the quality is poor and there is a lack of social responsibility, the brand will not be able to gain a foothold and cannot be obtained. Consumer recognition.” Wang Hao said that the implementation of the new national standard soon, many apparel companies are highly concerned about this, and some companies also establish a cooperation mechanism with authoritative third-party testing agencies, learn from the latter's guidance, timely solutions to the production process Problems encountered.

In addition, the establishment of independent laboratories by enterprises is also one of the important measures for controlling quality by various means. Sun Ruizhe, vice president of China Textile Industry Association, believes that as a textile and garment company, achieving the “integration of production, learning and research” is the best model. Establishing laboratories on its own can not only help companies establish a solid defense line for internal quality control, but also improve R&D efficiency, and it also helps to bring into play the advantages of strong market orientation and rapid transformation of R&D results.
