SGS, the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company, has been officially approved as a Third-Party Laboratory Member and will soon be extending its fiber fragmentation testing services beyond consortium member organizations.

The textile industry has become increasingly aware of the issue of fiber fragmentation and its potential as a serious environmental polluter. The goal of TMC, founded in 2018, is to facilitate the development of practical solutions for the industry to minimize fiber fragmentation and its release into the environment from textile manufacturing and product life cycle.

The collaboration with SGS will provide TMC’s brand, retail and supplier members, with bespoke support and standardized testing services. Utilizing its global network of testing laboratories, including Hong Kong, Shanghai and Taipei City, members will gain access to our testing services to help them understand the requirements, whilst demonstrating their environmental responsibility and improving sustainability along the supply chain.

Yvonne Tse, Vice President - Global Softlines, SGS, said: “We are delighted to become TMC’s first approved third party laboratory and welcome the opportunity it brings to work collaboratively with TMC members and the wider textile and apparel industry to support them in taking the practical steps needed to accelerate reductions in fiber fragmentation.”
