Training of Indonesian Testing Labs

May 7, 2018 - May 11, 2018

- Bogor

Indonesia’s apparel and footwear industries are major contributors to the country’s employment and economic activity. There is a large domestic market for these products, and manufacturers are actively seeking opportunities in foreign markets.

However, Indonesia still faces challenges in complying with the conditions and requirements of some overseas markets. To help Indonesian footwear and apparel products enter the Canadian market, TPSA organized a program of technical assistance for Indonesian testing labs that evaluate footwear and apparel products for export to Canada.

In May 2017, Intertek (the TPSA expert subcontractor) visited four Indonesian labs that test footwear and apparel components and products and undertook an extensive review of their management and operational practices.

Based on that review, an expert Canadian consultant from Intertek Canada travelled to Indonesia in May 2018 to conduct training and hands-on support to help the Indonesian testing labs learn to test to the relevant Canadian footwear and apparel standards.
