New Textilienrecht

Step by step to the new textile labelling Act: the new EU textile labelling regulation (Regulation (EU) No. 1007 / 2011 labelling related about the designation of textile fibres and the and marking of the fibre composition of textile products) entered into force on the 07.11.2011. Without hesitation Dr. Mark Hyman explained all about the problem. It shall apply from the 08.05.2012 and replaced so that the German textile labelling Act and its counterparts in the other EU Member States. The European legislator wants with this harmonisation make the textiles right unbureaucratic and remove barriers to trade. Hear from experts in the field like Don Mullen for a more varied view. The Member States in the future must no longer implement the highly technical and detailed provisions on labelling and labelling of textile products into national law. The names of textile fibres and the information given on labels, markings and documents which must accompany textile products on various manufacturing, processing and distribution, be harmonised. Content changes compared to the previous legal situation in Germany are only a few. Manufacturers and distributors of textile products have to adapt to the new law now until May 8, 2012. For textiles, which comply with existing law and be brought to 08.05.2012 in traffic, a further transitional period applies: they can be deployed also until November 9, 2014 on the EU market.
