4) Fabric composition and content
5) Washing method
6) Product implementation standards
7) Product quality level
8) Product quality inspection certificate
9) Safety technology categories specified in GB18401
10) Precautions for use and storage
1. Name and address of the manufacturer – the name and address of the textile and clothing manufacturer registered and registered in accordance with the law shall be indicated
The import of textile and clothing products shall be marked with Chinese the name of the country or region of origin of the product, as well as the name and address of the agent, importer or seller registered in China according to law, without the need to specifically indicate the name and detailed address of the foreign production enterprise. The place of origin refers to the place where the product is finally made, processed or assembled.
2. Product name – should indicate the true attributes of the product and comply with the relevant provisions of national standards or industry standards.
Such as: men’s suits, jeans, down jackets, cotton clothing, etc. For some new products, it can also be named according to the use and characteristics of the product, such as triple thermal underwear, its main category should be knitted products, so it can be named “knitted thermal underwear”
The trade name of the product is not a substitute for the product name. Product names cannot be used as trademarked names alone, but they can be used in combination. If “Snow Lotus” is the trademark name, if snow lotus is used as the product name, it can be named “Snow Lotus Cashmere Sweater” (Bosideng Down Jacket)
3. Product number and specification – should meet the relevant provisions of national standards or industry standards, and clothing products should be marked with clothing number according to the requirements of “clothing number type”.
The model classification is more detailed, the height is in units of 5cm, the bust circumference and waist circumference are 4cm and 2cm respectively, and the upper and lower parts are marked with models to meet the needs of consumers. The letters Y, A, B, and C respectively indicate the physical characteristics of different people. Y-type refers to the body shape with a large chest and a thin waist; Type A represents general body type; Type B is slightly fat; Type C is fat.
The difference in body type is calculated by the range in which the value of bust circumference minus waist circumference belongs to the range, and there are different models for men and women. Men’s Y shape is 22-17cm, A type is 16-12cm, B type is 11-7cm, C type is 6-2cm; Women’s Y type is 24-19cm, A type is 18-14cm, B type is 13-9cm, and C type is 8-4cm. Children’s clothing models consist only of height and bust, and do not have a body type classification code.
For example, a set of suit tops marked with the number mark 175/92A, which represents the meaning that the suit top is suitable for men with a height of 174cm~176cm and a net bust between 90cm~93cm and a normal body shape.
4. Fabric composition and content – the composition and content of raw materials used in the product should be indicated, and the labeling of textile fiber content should comply with the provisions of the recommended textile industry standard FZ/T01053 “Identification of Textile Fiber Content”.
The regulation clarifies that textiles (including textile fabrics and textile products) and textile and garment products sold in China’s market, as well as textiles and clothing imported from abroad, should be marked with fiber types and content in accordance with regulations. Among them, the fiber name should use the terms and names specified in the national standard, and the use of product names, commercial names, loanwords, etc. is not allowed.
1) “Pure wool” and “100% wool”: The meaning of the two is different, whether it is combed wool products or coarse combed products, as long as they are marked as “100% wool”, they are not allowed to contain any other fibers. Unlike products labeled “pure (sheep) wool”, pure (sheep) wool products are allowed to contain a certain amount of non-wool fibers, but only mixed with polyester or nylon for reinforcement, and the sum of the two cannot exceed 5%. In addition, if there are visible, decorative fibers, as long as the content of wool fibers reaches 93%, and it can be judged that other fibers other than nylon and polyester are decorative, it can also be labeled as “pure (sheep) wool”.
2) “Pure cotton” and “100% cotton”: the two have the same meaning, there is no difference. This means that it cannot contain any other non-cotton fiber, even in small amounts.
3) 100% chemical fiber or purified chemical fiber: This labeling method is incorrect. For products composed of a single variety of chemical fibers, specific fiber names should be marked, such as “100% polyester” and “100% nylon”, etc., and cannot be generally marked as “100% chemical fiber” and “purified chemical fiber”. For products composed of two or more chemical fibers, although they are chemical fibers, they are also blended products, and the specific names of two or more chemical fibers and their respective proportions should be marked respectively.
4) 100% cashmere sweater: marked as 100% cashmere sweater, 5% wool is allowed. That is to say, as long as the cashmere content is greater than or equal to 95%, it can be treated as 100% cashmere. However, it is important to note that if the remaining 5% is not wool, but rabbit hair or chemical fibers, it cannot be labeled as 100% cashmere.
5. Washing method – washing method has a great impact on the performance and use of textiles and clothing, and correct labeling will avoid product damage caused by improper operation by consumers.
It is permissible to label the washing method of textile and apparel products only using graphic symbols without text descriptions. The washing method must be represented by graphic symbols, and the national GB/T8685 “Graphic symbols for the use of textiles and clothing” specified in the graphic symbols to express, can not design their own graphic symbols, can not use text alone, if you need to use text description, must also be on the basis of the graphic symbols to add the corresponding text.
6. The standard number of the product – the number of the national standard, industry standard or enterprise standard implemented by the product should be indicated.
The product standard number is the basis for the enterprise to organize production, and it is also the guarantee condition that the enterprise openly expresses to the majority of consumers, and the product standard number indicates that the product meets all the technical requirements and quality level requirements of the standard. Of course, marking the product standard number also provides an important basis for the technical supervision department to determine whether the product quality is qualified or not. Standards are divided into national standards (GB), enterprise standards (QB), textile industry standards (FZ). Example: GB/T stands for National Recommended Standard.
The product standards implemented by the enterprise during production can be national standards, industry standards, or enterprise standards higher than the national standards or industry standards. Of course, the enterprise standard must be officially approved, published and filed by the relevant authorities.
7. The quality level of the product – the product quality level clearly specified in the corresponding product standard should be indicated.
8. Product quality inspection certificate – for domestically produced qualified products, each single product or sales unit should have a product factory quality inspection certificate.
9. Safety technology category – the corresponding safety technology category stipulated in the mandatory national standard GB18401 “National Basic Safety Technical Specification for Textile Products” should be indicated.
The mandatory national standard GB18401 “National Basic Safety Technical Specifications for Textile Products” divides textile products for consumption and decoration into three categories: A, B and C:
Category A: refers to infant products, suitable for textiles and textile products used by infants aged 24 months or 80CM and below. Generally includes: infant underwear, outerwear, bedding and other infant products (diapers, diapers, bibs, towels, etc.)
Class B: Refers to products that come into direct contact with the skin. Generally includes: intimate underwear, middle clothing, single outerwear, home textiles
Class C: Products that do not come into direct contact with the skin. Generally includes: middle garments, outer garments (worn in addition to other clothes that cover the whole area of the body)
