Softline & Accessories
Accelerated fashion seasons in the apparel and home textile industry create an urgency to quickly produce quality products that are compliant. With softline, textile, footwear and accessory companies expanding into new global markets, they face an increasingly complex regulatory environment that challenges the turn-around of goods. At Bureau Veritas, we help companies manage risk and achieve their goals of products that meet multiple country regulations in a timely manner.
By providing full quality assurance services for all stages of the product life cycle, Bureau Veritas can help protect your reputation and brand. Our proactive approach can provide design evaluation at the pre-production stage, as well as test to national and international standards, manage defect analysis based on customer feedback, and analyze product against the competition.
Recently launched developments include our Chemical Discharge Monitoring Service in support of many brands and retailers goals of achieving zero discharge of hazardous chemicals by 2020. We also continue to see a positive uptake in our upstream services such as the Mill Improvement Program that enables factories and mills to perform their own testing and to improve quality, social and environmental impact resulting in significant financial benefits for all involved.
