About The Webinar

Textile & apparel products are subject to special requirements for marking and labeling that are governed by U.S. Customs and Border Protection and/or the Federal Trade Commission.  Some labeling information must be placed in certain locations within a product or at a certain point in the supply chain. In addition, labels may be allowed to be temporary or have to be permanent.  Further, certain portions of products need not be considered for fiber content identification. Join us for an overview of the applicable requirements and a discussion on the specifics.
