Labelling complexity a key dilemma for textile industry

„There is a desire for a supply chain with maximum flexibility and the ability to ship products into any country, which would mean a lot of languages and meeting all of the different requirements”, writes California Apparel News, a trade magazine.

The article quotes the joint position paper adopted by the European Branded Clothing Alliance, the American Apparel and Footwear Association and the United States Fashion industry association on non-tariff barriers to trade between the EU and the U.S., which recommends the “harmonisation of regulations on labelling”, based on ISO standards and elimination of regulations on U.S. state and EU member state requirements in favour of U.S. and EU federal-level requirements.
