TESTEX opens new office in Melbourne

Industry News | August 1, 2010 | By:

Australia imports and exports textiles, but the country has no controls on chemical substances in textile imports and limited safety requirements on exports. TESTEX AG, Zurich, Switzerland, just established a new office in Melbourne that can test both incoming and outgoing textiles to ensure they meet international standards; if they do not, it will seriously hamper Australia’s ability to compete in global markets. The TESTEX Australian office will introduce and advocate for quality standards such as the Oeko-Tex Standard 100, REACH requirements of the European Union, American Apparel Footwear Association Restricted Substances List, and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission list of mandatory banned harmful substances.
