  • SME Panel – Textile Labelling Regulation (TLR) – 2024

    Posted by een on June 11, 2024 at 2:09 pm

    The European Commission plans to revise the Textile Labeling Regulation (EU) 1007/2011 (TLR) in the context of the implementation of the EU Strategy for Sustainable and Circular Textiles (COM (2022) 141). The Commission assesses the need to revise the TLR to update the current provisions and introduce specifications in new labeling areas (eg instructions for care, origin, size) and for physical or digital labeling of textiles, while also taking into account other ongoing legislative initiatives affecting the textile sector, such as the proposed Ecodesign Regulation for sustainable products, the proposal to revise the Waste Framework Directive or the proposal for a Directive on more consumer rights for a green transition.

    The main elements of the Regulation are:
    · a general obligation to indicate the full fiber composition of textile products;
    · minimum technical requirements for applications for naming a new fibre;
    · the requirement to indicate the presence of non-textile parts of animal origin;
    · exception applicable to customized products made by self-employed tailors;
    · empowering the European Commission to adopt delegated acts to amend the technical annexes of the Regulation in accordance with Art. 290 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union;
    · report on implementation, review clause and investigation of dangerous substances to be undertaken by the Commission.

    Target audience:
    – SMEs active in the textile manufacturing and textile distribution sectors,
    – their umbrella organizations

    Deadline for submitting opinions: June 7, 2024
