WASHINGTON — The American Apparel & Footwear Association said final changes to textile labeling rules issued by the Federal Trade Commission will help reduce regulatory burdens on apparel and footwear brands.
The FTC issued final amendments to the Textile Fiber Products Identification Act on Friday. The Act requires that certain textile and apparel products sold in the U.S. carry labels disclosing generic names and the percentages of the weight of fibers in the product, as well as names of the manufacturer or marketer and the country where the product was processed or manufactured.
