The domestic light industry has been boosting in recent years. Many projects with foreign investments were implemented in the industry in 2010-2015. According to current estimates, the volume of light industry production will exceed 6.97 trillion soums by 2020.
Moreover, it is planned to scale up cotton yarn production from 218,300 tons to 562,800 tons. That, in turn, entailed the need to search for new outlets to sell the Uzbek yarn.
Experts rank the enhancement of credibility of quality of Uzbek products among the most important steps to achieve this goal. Certification of the yarn purchased by international independent companies is vital for the new importers.
This is the reason why the new laboratory is accredited by the 17025:2007 standard, and equipped with a unique device Uster Tester 5. It allows spinners to control the yarn quality in line with such international standards as linear density, the metric number, the number of defects, content of foreign particles, and others.
According to experts, the lab would considerably facilitate the mission of entering new outlets and expanding the map of exports for Uzbek spinners.
Along with testing, the new laboratory will provide pre-shipment inspection of yarn on the whole territory of Uzbekistan. This will raise quality and safety guarantees of the tested products throughout all stages, including the supply of raw materials and final products in almost all segments of the textile industry.
