According to a notification issued by the ministry of textiles on April 10, 2023, the Geo Textiles (Quality Control) Order, 2022, will come into effect 180 days later. Manufacturers will be required to obtain a licence, under which they will be permitted to produce notified products of geotextiles for the domestic market. However, this requirement will not apply to the export market.
India focuses on technical textile standardisation with a new quality control order (QCO) taking effect in October 2023.
Covering 19 different geotextile products, manufacturers will need to obtain a licence to produce for the domestic market, fostering a 100 per cent standard of perfection.
The requirement is exempt for the export market.
The notification outlined the specific products that will be encompassed under the quality control order for geotextiles, as shown in table below.
