Information on labels
Textile products must be properly labelled according to the valid legislation, usually defining the minimum requirements. Those responsible for product labelling, e.g. manufacturer, supplier, dealer, must meet these requirements. According to the legislation of EU member countries, the labelling of fibre composition on textile products is mandatory, while other information, according to the legislation of each individual member country, is optional or merely recommended. Other information includes:
The most common mistakes at the labelling of fibre composition are the use of generic names which are not translated into the native language and the use of trademarks and abbreviations instead of generic names of textile fibres. With the intention of reducing incorrect labelling of fibre composition, it is suggested to use the Translator which can find: generic names of textile fibres in official languages of all EU member countries and also in Croatian, Serbian and Turkish,generic names of fibres labelled with trademarks and generic names of fibres labelled with abbreviations.
Labelling by countries
Despite each country outside the EU having its own requirements on the labelling of textile products, these requirements have already been harmonised to a large extent with the EU labelling requirements, significantly improving textile product trading. The requirements on textile product labelling in individual EU member countries or in countries outside EU are available in the section "Labelling by countries".
