The Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) has been entrusted with the task of product standardization by formulating standards for various products including textiles and clothing products. Currently, over 1,400 standards are available for the textile industry, while BIS is in the process of revising the existing standards in consultation with the stakeholders and releasing the new draft standards for numerous products seeking comments. The Ministry of Textiles has taken a decision to issue the Quality Control Order (QCO) for all the textiles and clothing products to protect the interests of the consumers and also curb low quality imports and thereby protect the interests of the indigenous textiles and clothing product manufacturers. The Ministry of Textiles is also in the process of issuing more than 100 QCOs for technical textiles products and several QCOs have been issued for MMF textiles especially fibres and yarns including the polyester staple fibre and viscose staple fibre.
