SGS and UNIQLO to team up for infants clothing

SGS, the world’s leading testing, inspection and certification company, has joined forces with UNIQLO to launch the retailer’s first Independently Checked Mark (IC Mark) for clothing for infants. The SGS IC Mark is a globally recognised, voluntary product certification scheme that gives manufacturers and retailers greater ability to demonstrate their focus on quality and performance, and to reach their sustainability goals.

 

UNIQLO, the Japanese casual wear designer, manufacturer and retailer, contract the specialists at SGS to undertake a factory qualification audit alongside product testing, comprising both compliance and hazardous chemical substances testing, of UNIQLO’s infant series of textile products, fabrics and accessories.

 

SGS was able to certify that UNIQLO met the scheme’s mandatory and technical requirements – enabling the IC Mark certification to be awarded.

 

Yvonne Tse, Vice President, Global Softlines, SGS, said, “Our congratulations to UNIQLO in China for achieving this certification which reinforces their company-wide commitment to sustainability in the manufacture of their infant textile products. By taking a customised approach to our quality assurance certification, we were able to provide a corresponding certification mark based on the characteristics of UNIQLO’s products. This award enables the company to demonstrate the outstanding characteristics of its products and stand out to consumers amongst fierce market competition. To consumers around the world, we believe it’s only trusted because it’s tested.”
