The textile and apparel industry continues to play a major role in the Indonesian economy. This industry contributes significantly to the growth of the country's gross domestic product and its foreign exchange earnings. Allegedly, this industry will contribute around 5 percent to global exports.


Until now, Indonesia is still the leading textile and apparel producer in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) region. Of course this must be maintained by improving the quality of its production, by developing textile-related standards.


At present, the textile industry in the APEC region is focusing on improving health aspects, for example, antibacterial, deodorant, antifungal and antiviral textile products.


Zakiyah opened the Seminar on Capacity Building on Testing Methods for Functional Finishing on Textile Products and Certification Methods within the APEC Region in Jakarta. The seminar was organized by the Japan Textile Evaluation Technology Council (JTETC) which collaborated with the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC), and was facilitated by the Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO).


On this occasion, Director of JTETC, Norimitsu Suso emphasized the importance of harmonizing the testing method in trading. "With the harmonization of testing methods, the quality standards of products produced by each other will be the same, so as to increase exports and minimize trade barriers," he said.


Zakiyah also supports the harmonization of textile testing methods, especially for APEC member countries. He also encouraged participants, both producers, certification bodies, and testing laboratories from APEC member countries to pay attention to textile standards in the health sector.


As for accommodating the needs of the textile industry in Indonesia in trade between Asia Pacific countries, Zakiyah stated that BSN had adopted ISO standards in an identical manner and stipulated SNI ISO 20743: 2010 - Determination of antibacterial activity of products that are processed by antibacterial enhancement.


In general, until now BSN has set 326 Indonesian National Standards (SNI) related to textile products, namely 208 standards for testing methods and 118 standards for textile products. SNI examples for textile products are SNI 8444: 2017 - Brocade Fabrics, while SNI for testing methods is related to textiles, for example SNI 08-1272-1989 concerning Textiles, Terms and definitions in improvement.


In this seminar, the speakers / experts provide an understanding of the importance of the testing methods and certification used for the Product. "I hope, the seminar participants can learn the testing methods of textile functionality and certification schemes, so that they can later be applied in Indonesia to improve the competitiveness of local textiles," Zakiyah hoped




Industri Tekstil dan Pakaian Jadi Sumbang 5 Persen Ekspor Global




Industri tekstil dan pakaian jadi terus memainkan peran utama dalam perekonomian Indonesia. Industri ini memberikan kontribusi signifikan terhadap pertumbuhan produk domestik bruto negara dan pendapatan valuta asingnya. Disinyalir, industri ini akan berkontribusi sekitar 5 persen untuk ekspor global.


Hingga kini, Indonesia masih menjadi produsen tekstil dan pakaian jadi terkemuka di kawasan Perhimpunan Bangsa-Bangsa Asia Tenggara (ASEAN). Tentu hal ini harus dapat dipertahankan dengan cara meningkatkan kualitas produksinya, dengan mengembangkan standar terkait tekstil.


Saat ini, industri tekstil di wilayah APEC sedang berfokus pada peningkatan aspek kesehatan, Contohnya, produk tekstil antibakteri, deodoran, antijamur, dan antivirus.


Zakiyah saat membuka seminar Capacity Building on Testing Methods for Functionality Finishing on Textile Products and Certification Methods within the APEC Region di Jakarta.  Seminar ini diselenggarakan oleh Japan Textile Evaluation Technology Council (JTETC) yang berkolaborasi dengan Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC), dan difasilitasi olehJapan External Trade Organization (JETRO).


Dalam kesempatan ini, Direktur JTETC, Norimitsu Suso menekankan pentingnya harmonisasi metode pengujian dalam perdagangan. “Dengan adanya harmonisasi metode pengujian, standar kualitas produk yang dihasilkan satu sama lain akan sama, sehingga dapat meningkatkan ekspor dan meminimalisir hambatan perdagangan,” ujarnya.


Zakiyah pun mendukung adanya harmonisasi metode pengujian tekstil, khususnya bagi negara-negara anggota APEC. Ia juga mendorong para peserta, baik produsen, lembaga sertifikasi, maupun laboratorium penguji dari negara-negara anggota APEC untuk memperhatikan standar tekstil di bidang kesehatan.


Adapun untuk mengakomodir kebutuhan industri tekstil di Indonesia dalam perdagangan diantara negara-negara Asia Pasifik, Zakiyah menyatakan bahwa BSN telah mengadopsi standar ISO secara identik dan menetapkan SNI ISO 20743:2010 – Penentuan aktivitas antibakteri produk yang diproses penyempurnaan antibakteri.


Secara umum, hingga kini BSN telah menetapkan 326 Standar Nasional Indonesia (SNI) yang terkait dengan produk tekstil yaitu 208 standar untuk metode pengujian dan 118 standar untuk produk tekstil. Contoh SNI untuk produk tekstil adalah SNI 8444: 2017 – Kain Brokat, sedangkan SNI untuk metode pengujian terkait dengan tekstil misalnya SNI 08-1272-1989 tentang Tekstil, Istilah dan definisi dalam penyempurnaan.


Dalam seminar ini, para pembicara / pakar memberikan pemahaman tentang pentingnya metode pengujian dan sertifikasi yang digunakan untuk Produk. “Saya harap, para peserta seminar dapat mempelajari metode pengujian fungsionalitas tekstil maupun skema sertifikasinya, sehingga nantinya dapat diterapkan di Indonesia untuk meningkatkan daya saing tekstil lokal,” harap Zakiyah
