The Rule, officially called the Rule on Care Labeling of Textile Wearing Apparel and Certain Piece Goods, requires manufacturers and importers to attach labels with care instructions for drycleaning, washing, bleaching, and drying/ironing garments and certain piece goods.
Robert Frisby, a staff attorney in the FTC Bureau of Consumer Protection’s Division of Enforcement, will provide opening remarks at the roundtable. Participants will discuss professional instructions for wetcleaning, the use of ASTM and ISO care symbols, and the development of care instructions. A complete agenda for the CLR Roundtable and biographies for speakers are available online now.
