Commission Expert Group on textile names and labelling

Commission Expert Group on textile names and labelling

The Commission expert group on textile names and labelling aims to provide expertise and advice on matters related to new fibre names and labelling. The members of the group also discuss and exchange information on aspects relevant to the application of Regulation (EU) N° 1007/2011. The group's deliberations may not necessarily be made publicly available, notably when enterprises' commercial in confidence information is involved.

The members of the group are experts appointed by the Member States. The Commission may invite, on an ad hoc basis, observers and experts from outside the group with competence on specific subjects to attend the meetings and participate in the work of the group.
