Custom vs. Synthetics

From the beginning of the 2014 year, customs will stop letting children’s sportswear and shoes made of synthetic materials into Russia. This is done in accordance with the laws of the Customs Union.

According to experts, the main obstacle for children's sportswear from abroad will be the hygroscopicity criterion, since synthetics do not absorb water, like cotton or linen.

At the same time, she stressed that the regulations definitely need to be improved - it is necessary to prescribe the requirements for each type of clothing.

As for synthetics, now manufacturers are trying to resolve the issue through appeals to the Eurasian Commission, the Ministry of Sports, to the chief sanitary doctor, but so far no effective solution has been found. Sergei Sokolov (Nike) called on regulators to resolve the issue not from the point of view of formal rules, but first of all keeping in mind the interests of the consumer. Sergey Agibalov, a representative of Sportmaster, said that one of the solutions to the problem could be a voluntary declaration of safety and responsibility to consumers.

From the beginning of 2014, the customs will no longer allow children's sportswear and shoes made of synthetic ...
