The US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is proposing to add seven generic fibre names to the rules and regulations under the Textile Fibre Products Identification Act (Textile Rules), which require marketers to, among other things, place a label on each covered textile product disclosing the generic names and percentages by weight of the constituent fibres in the product.

The deadline for receiving comments is March 19, according to international trade consultant Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg.

Section 303.7 of the rules lists the generic fibre names and definitions the FTC has established through its textile petition process and incorporates by reference the generic names and definitions set forth in the ISO 2076 standard.

FTC is now proposing to incorporate the most recent version of that standard (from 2013), which added seven generic fibre names not defined in the 2010 standard: chitin, ceramic, polybenzimidazole, polycarbamide, polypropylene/polyamide bicomponents, protein, and trivinyl.
