DHAKA – More than 100 ready-made garment factories in Bangladesh will no longer be able to export their products as part of a clampdown by the Bangladeshi government on unsafe units. Bangladesh’s Department of Inspection for Factories and Establishments this week asked the Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association and the Bangladesh Knitwear Manufacturers and Exporters Association to stop providing utilisation declarations for export and import to 189 member factories due to non-compliance in fixing safety faults.

The DIFE wrote to the BGMEA requesting it to stop providing the UDs to 143 member factories for three months as, it is claimed, the owners of the units had failed to start safety remediation works. Further, on 29 December last year, the department sent another letter to the BKMEA asking it to stop providing the UDs to 46 member factories over non-compliance.
