EU: Fibre labelling laws to be simplified
The European Commission (EC) is to make it easier for companies to launch new fibres by combining three European Union (EU) labelling laws into one unified piece of legislation.
Speeding up the registration process for new fibres should, the Commission says, encourage innovation in the textile and clothing sector and allow consumers to benefit from new products more quickly.
The revision of EU legislation on Textile Names and Labelling was announced in 2006, and consultations with the industry were carried out last year.
The full text of the proposal can be seen here.
