FTC approves Federal Register Notice establishing new fiber name & definition
21
Mar '09
The FTC has approved the publication of a Federal Register notice amending Commission Rule 7(c) of the Rules and Regulations under the Textile Fiber Products Identification Act, commonly known as the Textile Rules, to establish a new generic fiber subclass name and definition.

The new name and definition, for a subclass of fibers made from poly(trimethylene terephthalate) (PTT), has been established within the existing definition of “polyester,” and is named “triexta.” The rule amendment was made following a public comment period in response to a petition filed by Mohawk Industries, Inc., E.I. du Pont de Nemours and Company, and PTT Poly Canada.

Effective as of the date the notice is published in the Federal Register, “triexta” may be used as an alternative to the generic name “polyester” for the specific subclass of textile fibers defined in the amendment.

The Commission vote approving publication of the Federal Register notice was 4-0. (FTC File No. P074201; the staff contact is Janice Podoll Frankle, Bureau of Consumer Protection, 202-326-3022; see related press release dated April 7, 2008 at http://www.ftc.gov/opa/2008/04/text.shtm.)

Commission Approves Final Consent Order in Matter of Genica Corporation
Following a public comment period, the Commission has approved a final consent order in the matter of Genica Corporation. The vote approving the final order was 4-0. (FTC File No. 082-3113; the staff contact is Molly Crawford, Bureau of Consumer Protection, 202-326-2252; see press release dated February 5, 2009, at http://www.ftc.gov/opa/2009/02/compgeeks.shtm.)
