EU introduces new labeling norms for textile products

May '12
A new European Union (EU) regulation No. 1007/2011 on textile fibre names and related labelling and marking of the fibre composition of textile products repeals and replaces Directives 2008/121/EC on textile names, 96/73/EC on certain methods for the quantitative analysis of binary textile fibre mixtures and 73/44/EEC on the approximation of the laws of the member states relating to the quantitative analysis of ternary fibre mixtures.

Regulation (EU) No. 1007/2011 of the European Parliament and the Council of 27 September 2011 on textile fibre names and related labelling and marking of the fibre composition of textile products (Official Journal L 272, 18.10.2011, p.1) describes conditions and rules for the labelling of textile products.

The information required concerns the composition of the textile products which must be provided using harmonised fibre names. The regulation also stipulates methods to check on whether the composition of textile products is in conformity with the information supplied.

The Regulation is based on the Textile Directives, revising them in line with recent legislative standards to facilitate its direct applicability and to ensure that citizens, economic operators and public authorities can readily identify their rights and obligations.
