Experts have advised the Bangladesh government to ensure proper implementation of the national chemical guideline for the domestic textile and apparel industry in order to increase exports. They were taking part in a discussion hosted by Bangladesh's commerce ministry on the draft national chemical management guidelines for the textile and apparel industry.
According to Asif Ashraf, a director of Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporter Association (BGMEA), the recommendation should be executed effectively. He said that buyers have varied needs for ensuring safety, and local garment manufacturers would need to establish capability in chemical management.
The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH is assisting the Bangladesh commerce ministry in developing the guideline on behalf of the German government.
The goal of the guideline is to better protect workers and the environment and to prevent or reduce chemical-related diseases and injuries.
The guideline would apply to any job activity in textiles and readymade garment production that uses chemicals, according to the draft.
