European customers raise shoes export inspection requirements again

it is understandable that customers should put forward reasonable requirements for their products within their normal scope. However, if this requirement exceeds a certain limit, it will undoubtedly cause certain pressure on producers. Recently, a person in charge of a toy enterprise in our city said helplessly: “now the company has received the new product testing requirements from foreign customers. 1f it tests according to the customer’s requirements and provides a certification report, it will cost 3000 yuan” The cost of product export certification is increasing. ” 1n fact, there is not only one such thing

in the interview, the reporter learned that, including toy enterprises, export enterprises such as clothing, shoes, bags and so on will receive new product testing requirements from foreign customers every year. What kind of pressure does the increasing certification requirements bring to our city’s export enterprises? How should enterprises deal with it? 1n this regard, relevant people in the industry organized a discussion on such incidents

the cost of certification increases year by year

host: what kind of pressure does the new requirements of foreign testing and certification bring to export enterprises

ZHENG Jingdong: every year, foreign customers will put forward new requirements for the detection of hazardous substances, and the cost of enterprises in the detection and certification is also increasing year by year. For example, in the first half of this year, some U.S. customers proposed that in the future, for each shipment of goods exported in batches, they must provide the test and certification report of phthalate free substances. Orders placed by foreign customers are usually shipped in batches, at least in two to three batches. 1n other words, last year, when an American customer placed an order, the enterprise only needed to do one phthalate test and certification, but now it has to do two or three times. 1t costs 4000 yuan to do a phthalate certification. This year, the cost of this test alone has doubled or tripled

Xu Changsheng: Europe is the main export market of toys in our city, and the European market has the most stringent technical requirements for imported toys. New testing standards emerge in endlessly. The production cycle of toys is usually three months, and the European Union often introduces new quality standards for imported toys every three months, adding new requirements for testing and certification of harmful substances, This increases the risk of enterprise export. When the products are exported to Europe, they may be notified or returned because they fail to meet the new quality and safety standards. 1t is a matter of no fault that customers put forward reasonable requirements within their normal scope for products. However, if this requirement exceeds a certain limit, it will undoubtedly cause certain pressure on producers.

improve the level of functional certification

host: in addition to the certification requirements put forward by foreign customers, should enterprises take the initiative to carry out testing and certification, and how to carry out certification in a targeted way

Huang Haibin: certification is an important evidence to show the quality of products. Enterprises take the initiative to do a good job in product certification, which helps to distinguish their products from low-end products without certification and add added value to their products. For example, a clothing enterprise has developed a functional fabric, which can prevent dust and deodorize. The enterprise can carry out quality certification for the new functions of the fabric, obtain the certification report of the authoritative laboratory, and obtain the recognition of foreign customers

ZHENG Jingdong: enterprises can carry out product testing and certification in a targeted way through comparison, such as what quality certification has been carried out by domestic first-line enterprises, and enterprises can apply for certification. 1n the process of product inspection and certification, testing and certification can help enterprises improve the technical content and safety of products, and shorten the distance with first-line enterprises

the price of the old model renovation has increased

host: the new requirements for testing and certification make the production cost of enterprises increase continuously. How should enterprises deal with this

ZHENG Jingdong: in order to meet the new testing requirements, enterprises must find new raw materials that meet the standards. 1n the selection of new raw material suppliers, enterprises should “shop around” to select raw and auxiliary material suppliers that meet the testing requirements and have high cost performance. 1n addition, raising prices is also one of the ways for enterprises to reduce pressure. For the old style of last year, enterprises can carry out renovation design. Although the appearance is the same as last year, they can use the most popular color and pattern elements of that year. After renovation, the quotation of the old style can be a little higher than last year, and customers are more willing to accept it

Xu Changsheng: in addition to the increase in testing costs, the prices of hardware, cloth and other main raw materials have also increased by 34% since the beginning of this year. 1n the face of cost pressure, price increase has become an inevitable choice for enterprises. Considering the sensitivity of foreign customers to price increase, if foreign customers place orders for old styles this year, the enterprise can not increase the quotation, but ask customers to double the order; Considering that the quotation of new products is usually higher than that of old ones, this year, enterprises have accelerated the frequency of new product updates, and launched a new product catalog to customers every six months, doubling the speed of new product updates
