It is worth mentioning here that Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) is already available for around 1500 textiles and clothing products, it was only optional for any manufacturer and buyer to adopt the standards and mostly these standards were used only as a guideline. The Government has taken a decision to issue Quality Control Order with the mandate of BIS certification for various textile products to protect the interest of consumers, ensure production of higher quality products and also prevent import of sub-standard MMF raw materials that affect the competitiveness of indigenous MMF fibre and filament yarn manufacturers.
The industry across the value chain has difficulties in obtaining BIS certificate within the prescribed time. Predominantly, the MSME nature of spinning mills manufacturing 100 per cent Polyester Staple Fibre Yarn find it difficult to establish the prescribed testing equipment within the factory as per the guidelines of the BIS.
Industry has insisted the BIS to expedite the process of certification on a fast track to avoid any disruption in the manufacture, cancellation of export orders and its consequential impact.
A similar time extension is also requested for Viscose Staple Fibre as BIS is yet to provide BIS certification for suppliers from over 20 countries.
