Duration: Twelve (12) months
Approval: 32nd Annual Ministerial Meeting of the Group of 77 (New York, 26 September 2008)
Completion: Final report submitted on 4 March 2011
Impact: A South American laboratory network of camelid textiles was set up and a series of missions, round tables and related events among stakeholders were held to exchange information and experiences with a view to increasing the market competitiveness of the camelidae fibre and achieving international accreditation (ISO 17025) of network laboratories through improved and harmonized technical standards, procedures and quality certification. The creation of the network provided a platform for scientific research and innovation along the entire chain adding value to laboratory services for providers of camelidae fibre in the areas of production and quality control and supported the development of personnel trained in IWTO test-methods and regulations with a view to achieving licensing by IWTO in the near future.
