We have shown that environmental standards are becoming a critical issue for TH Industries. This sector is particularly concerned that, firstly, many substances are used throughout the manufacture of textile products, and on the other hand, it touches closer to consumer health. Since 1995 we began to focus on the links between trade and the environment. The objective is to determine the impact of environmental regulations restrict the use of azo dyes imposed by developed countries on exports from developing countries. In 2005, REACH obligations, regulatory framework for chemicals affect European producers and importers that have essentially relations with developing countries in the GCV. The latter include tests on chemicals and the requirement of certification. Tunisian producers have to bear the cost of testing if their input suppliers are eco-certified.
