Expert Group on textile names and labelling

Expert Group on textile names and labelling

The Expert Group on textile names and labelling discusses and exchanges information on the application of Regulation (EU) N° 1007/2011 on textile fibre names and related labelling and marking of the fibre composition of textile products. The members of the Group also provide their expertise and advice on other matters related to fibre names and labelling.

The Group's deliberations may not necessarily be made public, notably when they are related to the confidential information of enterprises.

The members of the Group are experts appointed by the member countries. The European Commission may invite, on an ad-hoc basis, observers and experts from outside the Group.
