Bureau Veritas Consumer Products Services sponsors the ASBCI Spring Conference: "The Reality of UK Manufacturing"

08/04/16

~ Fashion production in the UK: is it a sustainable option?~

 

Warrington, 8th April, 2016 – Bureau Veritas Consumer Products Services (BVCPS) is delighted to be sponsoring the 2016 Spring Conference of the Association of Suppliers to the British Clothing Industry (ASBCI) which is taking place on Tuesday 19th April in Peterborough.


The conference – 'The reality of UK manufacturing: Is it a sustainable option?' – will cover key consumer, operations, quality, sourcing and ethical issues related to the revival of UK garment production, while the speakers will offer their views on the implications of “Brexit” to the British textile industry.

This one-day conference will include an exceptional line-up of speakers from across the industry including Verdict Retail, Cordings, Closet, ASOS, English Fine Cottons, David Bell, Assyst Bullmer, Make It British and Roy Lowe & Sons Ltd.

Bureau Veritas will actively participate in the programme and Ian Morris, Technical Consultant for Bureau Veritas Consumer Services, will give his views on how technical standards developed in the UK have contributed to the retail world. The UK has indeed a legacy of developing standards, with the support of industry and retail experts working for the British Standards Institute (BSI) and linked to CEN in Europe. Over the years, there has been a significant contribution of developed standards from the UK, including in clothing, both for children’s and adults’ products, for example flammability or cords & drawstrings, which have since been adopted globally.



Also, Mohammed Khaled, CSR Technical Regional Manager (EMEA) at Bureau Veritas Consumer Products Services, will be part of a panel discussion, chaired by the Ethical Trading Initiative (ETI), answering questions from delegates around ethical practices in factories in the UK and the Modern Slavery Act.



Bureau Veritas is, naturally, an active member of the ASBCI, contributing widely and sitting on many of the organisation’s committees and will have a strong presence at the Spring Conference.
