Review of the information standard - Care labelling for clothing and textile products
The ACCC is proposing to make a new information standard for care labelling for clothing and textiles to allow suppliers the option to provide this information through internationally recognised symbols or written words.
The ACCC has consulted on this proposal nationally and stakeholders have provided support for it, per policy option 2 - allow international standards, of the consultation paper.
The proposal would allow suppliers to comply with relevant parts of either of the following voluntary standards:
· Australian/New Zealand Standard (AS/NZS 1957:1998 Textiles - Care labelling)
· International Standard (ISO 3758-2012 Textiles - Care labelling code using symbols)
