FTC textile rules updated

March 9th, 2018 / By: / Industry News, News

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is updating regulations under the Textile Fiber Products Identification Act (Textile Rules). The Textile Rules require marketers to place a label on certain textile products to disclose information, such as the name under which the manufacturer does business. The FTC is eliminating an obsolete provision requiring that house word trademark owners furnish the agency with a copy of the mark’s U.S. Patent and Trademark Office registration before using the mark on labels.
