AATCC is the world's largest non-profit professional association that distinguishes and analyzes the color fastness, physical properties and biological properties of textiles. It is committed to developing standard test methods for dyed and chemically treated fabrics and plays an important role in formulating test methods for the international textile industry. The test method developed by AATCC is widely used in the global textile trade. At present, it has been widely used by the U.S. consumer product safety committee, the American Society for testing and materials, and the U.S. Federal act. It has been listed in ASTM performance standard specifications for use by the U.S. Customs.

China is a major textile exporter, and the United States is an important export destination. In the first half of this year, for example, textile exports to the United States amounted to US $4.795 billion, a year-on-year increase of 34.77%; Clothing exports reached US $10.197 billion, a year-on-year increase of 25.73%. American retailers want global suppliers to adopt the AATCC method. The international procurement contract specifies in detail how the goods must be tested, inspected and meet the requirements of social responsibility and safety. Moreover, the AATCC test method is constantly updated every year. Therefore, it is particularly important for export-oriented textile enterprises to have an in-depth understanding of the AATCC test method and the latest developments. In fact, some enterprises fail to fully understand and master the specified test methods, so it is difficult for them to make relevant improvements to make the products meet the compliance requirements when the products have quality problems.

It currently has thousands of individual and group members in more than 60 countries worldwide, mainly textile mills, garment and textile testing equipment companies, retail organizations, computer design, color determination and testing instrument manufacturers, fiber, yarn, chemical, dye and machine equipment manufacturers, independent and government testing laboratories, related textile industry associations, and textile design, chemistry, science and management majors students in textile design, chemistry, science and management. AATCC also works closely with organizations such as the Federal Trade Commission, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, the American Apparel and Footwear Association, the American Society for Testing and Materials, the American Fiber Manufacturers Association, the American Home Textiles Alliance, the American Carpet Association, the Cotton Corporation of America, the American Rope and Cord Association, the American Nonwovens Industry Association, the International Technical Textiles Industry Association, and the American Cotton Council.
