EU: Agrees new leather, fur labelling law
A deal on the shape of a new European Union (EU) labelling regulation means that animal inputs such as leather and fur must be mentioned on labels for textile products sold in the EU.
However, the text agreed by the European Parliament and the EU Council of Ministers drops a proposal that non-EU clothing and textiles sold in member states must have origin labels. This issue was pushed into a European Commission inquiry, with a report due by September 2013.
A parliament communiqué said: “Consumers will no longer risk inadvertently purchasing real fur or leather products when they would prefer not to do so.”
