FTC proposes changes to US textile labeling rules
07
May '13
The Federal Trade Commission is proposing changes to its Textile Labeling Rules, which require that certain textiles sold in the United States carry labels disclosing the generic names and percentages by weight of the fibers in the product, the manufacturer or marketer name, and the country where the product was processed or manufactured.  The Rules implement the Textile Fiber Products Identification Act.

In November 2012, the FTC sought public comment on the Rules as part of its systematic review of all current FTC rules and guides. 

In response to the comments received, the FTC proposes changes designed to clarify and update the Rules, and make them more flexible, giving businesses more compliance options without imposing significant new obligations.  The FTC also seeks comment on the costs and benefits of the proposed changes.

FTC Closes Investigations of 3 Football Helmet Manufacturers

The staff of the Federal Trade Commission has closed its investigations of three companies that manufacture and sell football helmets:  Riddell Sports Group, Inc., Schutt Sports, Inc., and Xenith, LLC, all of which have removed or agreed to remove potentially deceptive claims about concussion prevention from their advertising.
