SHANGHAI is establishing a dual check system to ensure the safety of local school uniforms after a recent case of a cancer-causing dye found in some of the clothing, according to a regulation issued by the city government over the weekend. The regulation is to take effect immediately.
For the first time, schools are ordered to send uniform samples for quality tests and only those that meet the standard can be offered to students.
Lots of schools never checked suppliers' products as it was not mandatory in procurement.
Also, the suppliers must send samples of each batch of uniforms for quality tests before they sell the clothes to schools. The quality authorities will blacklist factories that produce unqualified uniforms and ban them from supplying clothes to schools. Suppliers will find their business licenses revoked. Factory owners could face trial.
